Gary Barber's multiple graded stakes winning filly Wonder Gadot could possibly make her next start against colts in the Grade III $200,000 Lecomte on Jan. 13 at the Fair Grounds.
Trained by Mark Casse, the Ontario-bred daughter of Medaglia d'Oro made her first start a winning one against allowance company over the Polytrack at Woodbine before running switching surfaces in the Gr. I Natalma on the Woodbine turf, where she ran third. Following such an effort, Wonder Gadot successfully returned to the Polytrack at the Etobicoke oval as an emphatic six-length winner of the Gr. III Mazarine before shipping to Del Mar for the Gr. I Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies where she finished sixth. Last time out, she won the Gr. II Demoiselle at Aqueduct on Dec. 2.
“Mark and Mr. Barber are starting to entertain the idea of running her against the boys,” Casse's assistant trainer David Carroll said. “She's still in Florida but hopefully she'll get here shortly. The game plan is to cross enter (in $150,000 Silverbulletday Stakes on Jan. 13) and take a look and see where she is. I have actually never seen her in the flesh so I'm looking forward to seeing her. She's obviously a very nice filly in her own right, but apparently she's doing very well.”
Wonder Gadot breezed on Saturday morning at Casse Training Center in Ocala, Florida where she worked five furlongs in 1:02.40.
In addition, Carroll stated that Casse and Barber would also be represented by Gr. I Alcibiades winner Heavenly Love in the Silverbulletday Stakes.
Other known possible entrants for the Lecomte include Analyze This Jet, Kowboy Karma, Believe In Royalty, Ebben and Principe Guilherme. Possibilities for the Silverbulletday include Terras Angel and America's Tale.
