Winter Memories Looks Good in Final Diana Move

10 03 2010: Winter Memories with Jose Lezcano up win the 31nd running of the Grade III Miss Grillo, for 2-year olds fillies on the turf at 1 1/16, Belmont Park, Elmont, NY. Trainer J.J. Toner. Owners Phillips Racing Partners

Winter Memories and jockey Javier Castellano hit the Oklahoma turf course Monday morning to turn in a 59.83 five-furlong breeze in the lead up to Saturday’s Grade 1, $600,000 Diana for turf fillies and mares.

 

“Nice and comfortable, so we’re very happy with her,” said trainer Jimmy Toner. “We’re good to go. Every time she runs, you get excited. And the way she runs is exciting.”

 

Last year at Saratoga, Winter Memories won the Grade 2 Lake George and was a troubled fourth in the Grade 2 Woodford Reserve Lake Placid before going on to earn a Grade 1 score in the Garden City at Belmont Park.

 

After finishing fourth in her 3-year-old finale, the Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, Winter Memories made a winning 2012 debut in the Grade 3 Beaugay in May at Belmont. She enters the Diana off a second to front-running Tapitsfly, also confirmed for the Diana, in Belmont’s Grade 1 Longines Just a Game on June 9.
