Dress To Thrill to Make 2003 Debut at Calder
Trainer Christophe Clement indicated to Calder racing secretary Bob Umphrey Wednesday morning that he plans to let Moyglare Stud's 4-year-old filly Dress To Thrill accept the high weight assignment of 122 pounds for Saturday's $150,000 Calder Breeders' Cup Handicap.The 4-year-old Irish-bred filly would be making her season debut and first start since a head decision over Eclipse champion Golden Apples in the Grade 1 Matriarch Stakes at Hollywood Park on Dec. 1. Jockey Jose Santos will have the mount.A small but very high class field of seven or eight fillies and mares are likely to go to the post in the 1 1/16 miles turf test, including Santa Cruz Ranch's Stay Forever and Bitterroot Investments' Cellars Shiraz, the resident stars in their division.
