Howboutdemapples worked 4-furlongs from the gate at Keeneland this morning. Our 2-year-old filly by Tiznow had the fastest work of the day out of 40 horses going a half-mile from the gate. Howboutdemapples covered the ground in 47.2 seconds and trainer Steve Asmussen reported that this was her best work to date.
Bella Chica was greeted by an old friend after arriving at Kingfisher Farm. If you remember back in August of 2019, a great photo was posted of these two. The young lady in the photo is farm owner/manager’s Katie Fisher’s daughter.
Bella Chica will remain at Kingfisher Farm for a few weeks before moving to new trainer Andy Mathis barn at Golden Gate.
Congratulations to those of you who submitted the winning name! We would also like to thank everyone who took the time to come up with a creative name submission for the contest.
While the voting was extremely close, the highest number of votes went to the submission Interstellar. Unfortunately, this name was rejected by the Jockey Club due to its likeness to another existing name in Interstella. However, the Jockey Club did accept our second-place submission, revealed in the video above!
