Breeders' Cup Distaff Report--10/22/2001

The Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) has the reputation of being the most formful race on racing's most important day. However, it is actually the Juvenile that has the lowest average winning payoff of $10.84 of the seven traditional races on the card. The Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) has only had two runnings, and should not be judged historically. The Distaff comes in second with an average winning payoff of $17.09; no doubt last year's $113.80 upset victory by Spain has done much to lift that average.

One for the Ages

The Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I) has brought us some memorable showdowns between sophomore fillies and their more battle-tested elders, and this year's renewal figures to be no different.

Exogenous Upsets Gazelle for First Stakes Win

After finishing on the board in a graded stakes in each of her last three starts, Exogenous made it to the Belmont Park winner's circle Saturday after upsetting the field of 3-year-old fillies in the $250,000 Gazelle Handicap (gr. I) to earn her first career stakes win.

The grade I $250,000 Gazelle to be contested Saturday at 1 1/8 miles over the main track at Belmont Park marks the return of multiple grade I winner Fleet Renee. The daughter of Seattle Slew has not raced since winning Belmont's grade I Mother Goose on June 30 by 5 1/2 lengths.

Beautiful Music: Flute Doesn't Give Up in Oaks

Ask Bobby Frankel about Flute, and the 59-year-old trainer starts acting like a teen-ager in love. His eyes grow soft, his mouth stretches into a dopey smile, and his gruff voice turns into a warm purr. "What a sweetheart she is," Frankel said as he patted the friendly bay filly's nose one morning on the Churchill Downs backstretch. "She's a doll; she's my baby. Sometimes, I think she's almost human; she's so nice."

Hennig Keeps His Options Open With Three-Horse Oaks Entry

Don't believe Bobby Frankel. That was the message from rival trainer Mark Hennig Wednesday morning. He said his decision to increase his Oaks entry from two fillies to three was an insurance policy to make sure his client, Edward P. Evans, would have a runner in the big race. It was not, as Frankel claimed, a strategic maneuver to knock out the highly-regarded Flute.

Fleet Renee Eager In Final Kentucky Oaks Work

Tossing her head and fighting the bit, an eager Fleet Renee charged down the Churchill Downs backstretch Tuesday morning. She was trying to take off again while galloping out following her final work before Friday's Kentucky Oaks -- something that exercise rider Lisa Tenney called "a good sign." The filly's official clocking for the three-furlong move was :36 4/5, but trainer Michael Dickinson said he timed the 3-year-old daughter of Seattle Slew in :37.14.

Keeneland Race Report: Fleet Renee Preps for Oaks With Ashland Romp

Michael Dickinson surprised us in 1996, when Da Hoss conquered the heavy favorite, Mark of Esteem, in the Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. I). He surprised us again in 1998, when Da Hoss won the same race after a long layoff and just one prep. But this time the trainer surprised even himself. After he saddled Fleet Renee to upset the formidable Golden Ballet in the April 7 Ashland Stakes (gr. I) at Keeneland, Dickinson looked a little bit stunned.
