Carl Lizza in recent years revamped his breeding program to upgrade his stock, but he didn't live long enough to reap the rewards. The New York owner and breeder died just two weeks before Pure Gossip made her racing debut.
Multiple grade I winner Stacelita had her final serious work for the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) on Oct. 27 at Belmont Park, covering five furlongs in 1:02 4/5 under Ramon Dominguez.
Shkspeare Shaliyah and Pure Gossip turned in strong rallies to win two grade III turf stakes at Belmont Park Oct. 2 and appear headed to the Breeders' Cup World Championships.
