Dothraki Queen Returns to the Turf for 2016 Debut

Magdalena Racing’s Dothraki Queen, runner-up in the Darley Alcibiades (G1) and third-place finisher in the 14 Hands Winery Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) here last fall on the main track, will make her 2016 debut in Thursday’s 28th running of the $125,000 Appalachian (G3) Presented by Japan Racing Association at a mile on the turf.

Catch a Glimpse Back on the Scene of Biggest Win

David Carroll, now an assistant to trainer Mark Casse, remembers the first time he saw Catch a Glimpse.

“I was on the outside rail at the Breeders’ Cup here,” Carroll said, referring to the City Zip filly’s victory in the Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1).

Fast forward to April 2016, and Carroll is working up close and personal with Catch a Glimpse, who last week was named Canadian Horse of the Year for 2015 among her three Sovereign Awards.

Nyquist Jogs on Training Track; Work Scheduled Friday

Reddam Racing’s Nyquist jogged three times around Keeneland’s 5/8-mile all-weather training track Tuesday morning with regular exercise rider Jonny Garcia aboard.

“That is our standard routine at home to gallop a day and then jog,” said Jack Sisterson, assistant to trainer Doug O’Neill. “He trained on the training track several times here last fall before the Breeders’ Cup.”
