She’s Got Fire gets back on Tapeta

Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - News - By Ron Gierkink

ETOBICOKE, On­tario – She’s Got Fire will move back out to 1 1/16 miles on the Tapeta in Satur­day’s $100,000 La Prevoy­ante Stakes for On­tario-sired 3-year-old fil­lies, which was formerly a one-mile turf route.

She’s Got Fire grad­u­ated in a 1 1/16-mile race for On­tario-sired maidens and $40,000 claimers on June 2. Af­ter drop­ping a neck de­ci­sion about a month later in the seven-fur­long Lady An­gela, she fin­ished a lapped-on third in an­other On­tario-sired stakes, the 1 1/16-mile Eter­nal Search.

She’s Got Fire faded to sixth in a Sept. 1 turf ex­per­i­ment in the seven-fur­long Pass­ing Mood Stakes. She won her last race on Oct. 6, a seven-fur­long On­tario-sired al­lowance, as the luke­warm fa­vorite.

“She’s steadily im­proved on the year as she’s ma­tured,” trainer Josie Car­roll said. “I don’t think she took to the turf very well, but given her pedi­gree, we had to try it. She’s com­ing into this with some con­fi­dence, I would think.”

The wide-open event lured eight oth­ers, in­clud­ing the An­drew Smith trainees Line of Vi­sion and Stormy Sum­mer.

KEY CON­TENDERS

She’s Got Fire, by Sligo Bay Last 3 Beyers: 73-62-70

Line of Vi­sion, by Court Vi­sion Last 3 Beyers: 83-72-66

◗ She could be fa­vored off her vic­tory in the Eter­nal Search, af­ter which she was com­pet­i­tive in three con­sec­u­tive turf stakes. Most re­cently, she ral­lied for third be­hind Dixie Moon and Avie’s Mi­ne­shaft in the nine-fur­long Carotene for On­tario-bred sopho­more fil­lies.

Zestina, by Silent Name Last 3 Beyers: 76-71-70

◗ Last year’s Princess Eliz­a­beth Stakes win­ner has raced just once this year, which was a prom­i­nent sec­ond in the Aug. 5 Eter­nal Search. She has been work­ing ev­ery two weeks this fall and can ac­quit her­self well when fresh.
