Off just a pair of local half mile works, Joel Politi's 2019 Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Serengeti Empress, an Eclipse Award Finalist in the three-year-old filly division, is on target to make her seasonal debut in the Grade 3 Houston Ladies Classic (G3) on January 26.
“She's a horse who gets herself ready quickly,” trainer Tom Amoss said. “She's going to go to Houston. There's not really a dirt race for her here at Fair Grounds.”
In addition to the G1 Kentucky Oaks, the now 4-year-old daughter of Alternation also won the G2 Rachel Alexandra at Fair Grounds and as 2-year-old, the G2 Pocahontas at Churchill. She was most recently seen finishing third behind Blue Prize and Midnight Bisou in the G1 Breeders' Cup Distaff at Santa Anita.
