Talented Filly Donna Veloce Will Get Time Off To ‘Decompress,’ Return In March

Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies entrant Donna Veloce, trained by Simon Callaghan, exercises in preparation for the Breeders' Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California on October 28, 2019.

Kaleem Shah and Coolmore's juvenile filly Donna Veloce will now be given a couple months away from the races, reports drf.com. The runner-up in Saturday's Grade 1 Starlet had previously finished a close second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, which was just her second career start.

“She came out of it really good,” trainer Simon Callaghan told drf.com. “She jogged great this morning. We'll give her some time and let her decompress and bring her back in March.”

Callaghan hopes to have Donna Veloce ready for a pair of starts before the 2020 Kentucky Oaks, starting in March. The daughter of Uncle Mo, an $800,000 purchase at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Select sale, has earned $430,000 in her three career starts.
