Belsoeur Hopes Carolina Princess Sparkles On Turf

Her paternal grandfather was the king of grass sires but so far Carolina Princess hasn’t exactly taken to the turf. Trainer Yvan Belsoeur hopes that will change when he tries again with her on Sunday.

            The 3-year-old filly is a daughter of the Irish-bred Sligo Bay, who won the 2002 Grade 1 Hollywood Turf Cup Stakes and the granddaughter of Sadler’s Wells, who was the dominant sire in Europe and the foundation of the vast Coolmore breeding empire before he was retired in 2008 due to problems of advanced age. She has made four career starts, with two on Monmouth’s turf course, but her only win came in a maiden special weight on a sloppy track when the race was taken off the grass.

            “She’s a beautiful moving filly,” Belseour said while grazing her outside of his barn. “I’ve got to put more weight on her, but she should be fine. Maybe when we go back to Florida she’ll run in a stake.”

            She certainly shouldn’t have any trouble with the 1 1/16 mile distance of Sunday’s $32,000 allowance/optional claimer for non-winners of one-other-than, although every other filly in the field of 12 but one is more experienced and some are older and more mature.

            Carolina Princess figures to move forward from her last outing, when she came through on the rail and rallied under Armando Ayuso for a third place finish. Ayuso gets the return call.

            Belsoeur also trains My Place Anytime, who has won five successive races here during the meet and the filly is the only horse who can claim that win streak. Winiliscious is the other horse who has racked up five victories, but the Chuck Spina-trainee did not win her quintet consecutively.

Bp. cipto junaedi pernah Beli Rumah tanpa utang, tidak masuk akal ? Masih ada saja yg menuduh begitu padahal beliau pernah mendapatkan penghargaan MAN OF THE YEAR 2011 karena strateginya itu yang banya orang kenal dengan "strategi membeli banyak properti tanpa utang",
