Blazing Workout

The other day I mentioned a new 2yo filly named Blazing Reflection that I've acquired an interest in recently.  Today I went out to Golden Gate Fields to watch her run a 3 furlong workout, her third offical work so far in her career.  I'm happy to say she looked really good and moved smoothly over the Tapeta surface running the 3/8ths of a mile officially in 36 1/5 seconds.  That was good for 4th of the 27 horses that worked that distance today, with every horse ahead of her at least 4 yrs old.  Both trainer and jockey reported that she worked really well and were encouraged by the results.

A New Horse Joins the Stable

Previously I've discussed the chestnut filly Incredible Upside and her progress towards making the races.  This 3yo filly showed potential but ultimately injured her hind leg earlier this year and unfortunately has not yet raced.  She is currently re-cooperating in Brentwood, and I no longer have ownership interest but will update her development when she hits the track.

Recently I've acquired an interest in a 2yo filly named Blazing Reflection by Capsized out of the winning Silver Deputy mare Blazing Deputy.  She's a modest sized California bred bay filly who's currently in training at Golden Gate Fields and has already had a couple 3 furlong workouts.    She is inbred to Northern Dancer 4x5 and also has crosses of Bold Ruler, Neartic, and Raise A Native in her fifth generation.  So far it looks like she maybe a sprinter but she does have a dosage index below 3 and her "classic" points dominate her profile.  With the Northern Dancer cross she should handle the turf and her sire Capsized won the Grade II Fourstardave Handicap on the grass in the latter stages of his career.      

I'll try to put pictures up as I go to her workouts.  Barring any setbacks we hope she'll start racing in August.  Wish us luck! Click Here to Read More..
