A well-matched group of sophomore fillies accustomed to trading blows with one another co-headline the opening day of Saratoga as graded stakes winners Fifty Five, Dream Dancing, and Sweeping Paddy are set to start in the Lake George Stakes (G3T).
G. Watts Humphrey's homebred Morticia secured her second stakes win of the season May 20 when she just held off Lull to win the $100,000 Soaring Softly Stakes on the Belmont Park turf.
After finishing fifth in her graded stakes debut, Phillips Racing Partnership's Bellavais will try to return to her stakes-winning form when she faces an expected seven other 3-year-old fillies in the Soaring Softly Stakes May 20 at Belmont Park.
With a late kick in the stretch, Hope Jones' Party Boat overcame frontrunner Team of Teams to score by a length in the $100,000 Memories of Silver Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack April 23.
La Coronel stamped herself the pro-tem leader of a deep bunch of 3-year-old turf fillies when she handily bested an 11-horse field that included 2016 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T) winner New Money Honey and runner-up Coasted.
Toner himself admits to being guilty of underestimating what Bellavais would be capable of—that is until he witnessed her competitive fire literally jump into someone's face over the Gulfstream Park turf Jan. 7.
Despite being accidentally hit with the whip of a rival's jockey in deep stretch, Phillips Racing Partnership's homebred Bellavais quickly regained her focus and momentum to capture the $100,000 Ginger Brew Stakes Jan. 7 at Gulfstream Park.
The dispersal of Conquest Stables began Nov. 14 at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale, topped by the $800,000 bid by Barbara Banke's Stonestreet Stables for Conquest Serenade, a half sister to Canadian champion Fatal Bullet.
Conquest Vivi remained perfect through three career starts with a stalking score in the $125,000 Victorian Queen Stakes at Woodbine Oct. 30.
Excelebration can be added to the list of championship-caliber horses who had the misfortune to be foaled in the same crop as a still better runner.
