Think of it as a spa day!
Going to Vegas had her final tune-up breeze this morning, working a half-mile in 48 seconds flat. A strong conclusion to a series of works following her Grade III win on March 27th. The 4-year-old filly is on track for next Monday’s Grade 1 Gamely Stakes and couldn’t be doing any better.
Going to Vegas breezed 5 furlongs in 1:01 flat over the Santa Anita main track on a misty Sunday morning. The 4-year-old filly traveled fantastic, hitting on all cylinders in this drill. Not only did she finish well to the wire but galloped out with ease.
Going to Vegas will be nominated for the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes on Thursday, May 20th. Nominations will likely be released the following day, Friday, May 21st.
Pending all continues well, Going to Vegas will have one final prep work on either next Sunday or Monday. Entries for the Gamely are taken on Friday, May 28th.
Going to Vegas worked 5 furlongs in 1:00.60 on Sunday morning at Santa Anita Park. A solo drill for the 4-year-old filly by Goldencents.
This week, Going to Vegas was given “a little more rein” as we are approaching closer to her next target race. This filly is naturally a good workout horse and does not need much encouragement in her works, but she will be given more freedom in these final tune-up breezes as we saw in this work.
Going to Vegas will have two additional breezes in preparation for the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes on May 31st.
Going to Vegas worked a half-mile in 48 seconds flat this morning over the Santa Anita main track.The 4-year-old filly was very keen to go early, as she cruised along under a tight hold from her exercise rider in this maintenance drill.
Going to Vegas is currently targeting the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes on May 31st at Santa Anita. She was also nominated for the Grade III Santa Barbara Stakes on May 8th but will most likely wait for the Gamely.
