Canadian Ballet Headed to BC Turf Sprint?

The possibility was first mentioned by Steve Zorn in his September 30th NTRA Turf Sprint post, that Obviously NY Stable (ONY) could send their prized filly and EquiSpace favorite, Canadian Ballet to the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint in November. She was scheduled to race at Keeneland in today's feature, but the turf conditions have forced Linda Rice to scratch her from the $100K Buffalo Trace Franklin County non-graded stake to be run at 5 1/2 furlongs. Taking on the boys in the Turf Sprint would certainly be a challenge but it appears that entering her in the KEE race was to prep her to see if she can dance with the big boys.

The chestnut filly won the $200K Turf Amazon Handicap at Philadelphia Park last month, in a photo defeating Queen Ofthe Catsle and the late charging Dubai Majesty, two strong horses in their own rights. Stewart Elliott shipped in with Canadian Ballet for the KEE race and had the mount at PHA also. Alan Garcia has also ridden her in the past, we'll see if the handlers will stick with Elliott if they point to Santa Anita.

The boys from ONY are a fun group and she's won four of her last six, so she's a hot filly, what a better way to spend an afternoon in SoCal....
