Small field for the Woodbine Oaks and Wonder Gadot looks to be a beast, but I’m rooting for Dixie Moon.

Midnight Disguise sidelined due to ankle injury
The multiple stakes winning New York-bred 3-year-old filly Midnight Disguise will miss the summer races due to an ankle injury, trainer Linda Rice said.

Midnight Disguise will get 60 days off after filling was discovered in an ankle shortly after her victory in the Bouwerie Stakes here on May 28, Rice said Thursday.

“She came out with a little filling in an ankle, we decided to stop on her and give her some time, she’s accomplished a lot,” Rice said. “She’s a big filly, I’m thinking we’ll be shooting for Belmont when we get back in the fall.”

Midnight Disguise won the Busher and Busanda Stakes at Aqueduct during the winter. After finishing fourth in the Grade 2 Gazelle at Aqueduct, Midnight Disguise was removed from consideration for the Kentucky Oaks. She was entered in but scratched from the Black-Eyed Susan at Pimlico on May 19 due to a bruise foot.

Midnight Disguise recovered in time to run in and win the Bouwerie Stakes for New York-breds on May 28.

Meanwhile, Holiday Disguise, the older half-sister to Midnight Disguise, is pointing to the Dancin Renee Stakes for New York-breds here on June 16.

Paradise Woods on brief vacation

Paradise Woods is in the midst of a vacation following a third-place finish in the Grade 1 Beholder Mile at Santa Anita on June 2.

Trainer Richard Mandella said on Wednesday that Paradise Woods has been turned out at Julie Adair-Stack’s local layup facility. Paradise Woods is expected to return to Mandella’s stable this month and is being considered for the Grade 1 Clement Hirsch Stakes at 1 1/16 miles at Del Mar on July 29.

Mandella said turf races or a sprint are other immediate possibilities for Paradise Woods, who won two Grade 1 races in 2017.

American Gal to undergo tests
American Gal is scheduled to undergo a battery of precautionary tests after finishing last of five in the Grade 3 Bed o’ Roses as a heavy favorite at Belmont Park on June 8.

“We’re being ultra-conservative,” trainer Simon Callaghan said. “We’re running tests in the next few days.”

Owned by Kaleem Shah, American Gal struck the gate at the start of the $250,000 Bed o’ Roses for fillies and mares at seven furlongs. The 4-year-old filly was third for the first half-mile before fading to finish 12 3/4 lengths behind Lewis Bay.

Callaghan said “missing the break and getting in tight” contributed to the loss.

Champion Caledonia Road done for the year; to be offered at auction
Caledonia Road, the champion 2-year-old filly of 2017, will not race again this year and will be offered at public auction later in 2018, her connections announced Monday night.

According to a press release issued by Nick Sallusto of Sallusto and Albina Bloodstock, who manages Caledonia Road for part-owners Newtownanner Stud, Caledonia Road will be turned out after developing bone bruising. Caledonia Road finished fifth of six in the Grade 1 Acorn at Belmont Park on June 9.

Rayya is running this Thursday at Prairie Meadows in the Iowa Oaks. I hope the trip to a relatively small track will help her get some confidence back after her next-to-last finish in the Kentucky Oaks.

Caledonia Road will be sidelined for the rest of the year and sold at one of the November sales after developing bone bruising.

Rich on TVG was talking about Wonder Gadot this morning; she is NOT targeting the Canadian Triple Crown. Casse plans to run her in the 2nd leg, the Prince of Wales, at Fort Erie on the dirt as a prep for the G1 Alabama at Saratoga.
It's official:

They had said as much on the Queen's Plate broadcast they were currently considering/targeting the PoW and the Alabama. But it's not cast in stone yet since Flameaway is also pointing at the PoW, however if their end target is really the Alabama, then he mentioned the Prince of Wales could be a good prep.

In other news, Monomoy Girl will be skipping the Alabama because they don't think she can get the distance.

While I'm rooting for a Wonder Gadot win in the Prince of Wales, I wouldn't mind seeing Flameaway do well. The Scat Daddy colt had a pretty tough Derby trail and then ran 13th in that swampy Derby. His return to racing in the June 23 Ohio Derby wasn't great, as he faded after dueling for the lead.
He's a good, tough racehorse and I love my Scat Daddies; I just hope the Derby Trail grind and mudwrestling Derby hasn't ruined the colt.

Personally I'd give the colt a freshening up and put him in some softer spots to get him to regain his confidence and I'm not sure that facing Wonder Gadot in a 9.5F test is going to do that.

What are the temps/heat index there? She's a rather slight filly, so maybe she would be vulnerable to heat stress?
