2013 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Pre-entries
7. Colonel Joan
My Conquestadory: has done nothing wrong in her two starts she beat the boys in a GR2 stake in her debut and just when you thought she couldn't get any better she made easy work of a GR1 field of fillies in the Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland. The sky is the limit for this filly and she only seems to be getting better.
Testa Rossi (FR): this filly has made six starts this year the bulk of them in France before being transferred to the barn of the more than capable Chad Brown. She managed to win three races over in France before coming to US soil where she captured the Miss Grillo Stakes which has proven to be a vital prep for this race. I like how she has loads of racing experience to back up on and will be awfully tough to get by in the stretch.
Al Thakhira (GB): a perfect two for two could very well beat My Conquestadory and in my opinion is the most likely to do it, these Europeans are always dangerous and cannot be counted out when it comes to these turf races.
Chriselliam (IRE): this one has made five starts with two wins a second to show for her efforts she has been running primarily in Europe and with moderate success. Would need to take major steps forward to win this one.
Clenor (IRE): this one has made six starts with three wins and a third to show for herself. She has a win over the surface which is a huge advantage in these juvenile races. She ran primarily in Ireland before making three US starts in which she won all three she will be awfully tough come Breeders Cup day.
Colonel Joan: this filly is still a maiden she has run three races with her best finish being a second place finish. She would need a miracle to beat this field of very talented fillies.
Dancing House: won her debut at Saratoga then ran a very good third in the Spinaway Stakes before switching to turf and putting in another good performance to run third in the Miss Grillo Stakes. Could potentially pull out an upset victory if she takes the right steps forward.
Flying Jib (GB): three starts and two wins this European is definitely one to be reckoned with she could very well beat this field and Juddmonte Farms has continually produced Breeders Cup winners, so don't be surprised if this one wears the flowers Breeders Cup day.
Granny Mc's Kitten: ran an okay fourth in the Miss Grillo would need to make good forward progression to even hit the board I much prefer her stablemate in this race, but you shouldn't discount a Kittens Joy this year, so don't be surprised if she does make the progression and run well enough to light up the tote.
Nesso: three starts this year and one win and two seconds to show for her efforts. Needs to take about twelve steps forward to have a chance against this deep a field.
Ready To Act: two starts for this filly and one win and one off the board finish would need to take major steps forward to win this one.
Sky Painter: love this filly though she had trouble getting by Testa Rossi in the Miss Grillo I still liked what I saw she has a very explosive kick that could very well stun her opponents she could very well be blowing by them all on Breeders Cup day.
Street Sailing: four starts and two wins for this daughter of Street Boss would need to take a major step forward to win this one.
Vorda (FR): this one has won four of her five starts and hasn't done anything wrong definietly one to watch she could very well repeat for the French in here and give them their second Juvenile Fillies Turf winner.
