whose dramatic victory in the Grade 2 Lake George last summer was one of the
more memorable races of the summer, is scheduled to breeze Monday as she
prepares for her next start in the Grade 1 Diana. Second to front-running
Tapitsfly in the Grade 1 Longines Just a Game on Belmont Stakes day last time
out, the El Prado filly opened her 4-year-old campaign with a 2 ¼-length win in
the Grade 3 Beaugay at Belmont.
“She’s doing great,” said trainer Jimmy Toner of
Winter Memories, who is owned by the Phillips Racing Partnership.
“Hopefully she can get the meet off to a good start.”
In addition to Hungry Island
and Winter Memories, the Diana is
expected to attract Tapitsfly,
2011 Diana heroine Zagora and
Europeans Law of the Range and Dream Peace, according to NYRA stakes
coordinator Andrew Byrnes. Federation,
Hard Seven, and Quiet Oasis are questionable.
