In today's notes:
Under the watchful eye of owner Frank Calabrese and trainer Wayne Catalano, stable stars Dreaming of Anna and Dreaming of Liz put in “maintenance works” over the Polytrack surface at Arlington Park on Thursday morning, four days after the suburban Chicago track ended its successful 2007 season.
Dreaming of Anna was first to work, hitting the track at 8:30 a.m. The 3-year-old daughter of Rahy breezed five furlongs in 1:00.20 under jockey Eusebio Razo Jr. Twenty minutes later, Dreaming of Liz was timed by Arlington Park clockers in 1:01.40 for the same distance, also with Razo in the irons.
“Both fillies worked well,” said Catalano, shortly after ‘Liz’ completed her work. “They both came out of their last races well. I was going to work them both yesterday but I decided to wait until this morning since it was a cooler day today. It was just a maintenance work today. I gave them a maintenance five-eighths instead of a maintenance half-mile since they are both going long in their next starts.”
Dreaming of Anna, last year’s Eclipse Award-winning 2-year-old filly who won Arlington’s Grade III Pucker Up Stakes in her last start on Sept. 8, is slated to start next in the Grade I $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at a mile and an eighth on the turf at Keeneland on Oct. 13.
Dreaming of Liz, a 2-year-old daughter of El Prado, won the Grade III $200,000 Arlington-Washington Lassie Stakes over a one-turn mile on Sept. 8 and is expected to run next in the Grade I $500,000 Darley Alcibiades Stakes on the opening day of the Keeneland meet Oct. 5. The mile and a sixteenth Alcibiades will be Dreaming of Liz’s first attempt over two turns.
Both fillies will remain stabled at Arlington until Sept. 26, when the barn area closes for the season, and will ship directly to Keeneland.
