Contested to train up to Filly & Mare Sprint

Trainer Bob Baffert indicated on Wednesday that his two-time grade 1 winner Contested would train up to the Nov. 3 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (gr. I).

The 3-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper has notched victories in the Acorn Stakes (gr. I) and the Test Stakes (gr. I), the latter of which came off a two-month layoff.

“I could probably have run her in the little prep here this week,” Baffert told the Daily Racing Form, “but she looks good and she gets a lot out of her works.”

Baffert also mentioned that Eden's Moon might be a possible entrant in the Filly & Mare Sprint, depending on how she did in this Saturday's Indiana Oaks (gr. II).
