Grade I winner Vacare, a 4-year-old filly unbeaten in five starts, will be shipped to Hollywood Park for the $300,000 Gamely Breeders’ Cup (gr. IT) on May 28, trainer Christophe Clement said Friday from New York.
“We are planning to come,” said Clement. “She will work here (Belmont Park) on Sunday.”
Vacare, a Kentucky-bred daughter of Lear Fan, won the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (gr. IT) at Keeneland in October when she was trained by Chris Block. In her only start for Clement, Vacare won the Magna Distaff Stakes at Gulfstream Park at 1 1/16 miles on turf on April 1. The Gamely, for fillies and mares, will be run at 1 1/8 miles on turf.
Jon and Sarah Kelly, of Rancho Santa Fe, own Vacare .
Clement shipped Voodoo Dancer to Hollywood to finish third in the 2002 Gamely.
