Sagamore Farm and WinStar Farm's Global Campaign, undefeated in two career starts, remains possible for the Fountain of Youth after working five furlongs Sunday morning at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream's satellite training facility in Palm Beach County.
“He worked in 1:01 and [three-fifths],” trainer Stanley Hough said. “He went in company, but it was a nice, controlled work. We were happy with it.”
It was the second work for Global Campaign since the son of Hall of Famer Curlin, unraced at 2, won a 1 1/16-mile optional claiming allowance by 2 ¼ lengths Feb. 9. Both his victories have come over Gulfstream's main track.
Hough said the connections are considering both the Fountain of Youth and Tampa Bay Derby (G2) March 9.
“He likes this track and it's close to home, so we're leaning toward that way, but we'll talk it over,” Hough said. “Global worked good and came back good, so I think he's prepared to go either place. We're going to see how the week goes and try to do the best thing for us and the horse. As far as the work today, it was very satisfying.”
Also at Palm Meadows, Cash is King and D.J. Stable's 2018 juvenile filly champion Jaywalk put in a final breeze in preparation for her 3-year-old debut in the $200,000 Davona Dale (G2) on the Fountain of Youth undercard.
Jaywalk went a half-mile for the one-mile Davona Dale, her first race since extending her win streak to four with a 5 ½-length romp in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) Nov. 2. It was her second straight Grade 1 triumph, following the Oct. 7 Frizette Oct. 7 at Belmont Park.
“She worked this morning and went good. Everything went perfect,” Kentucky Derby (G1)-winning trainer John Servis said. “The clockers got her in 50 and [two-fifths]. The race is Saturday so I was just letting her stretch her legs a little bit and put a little wind in her. She came out of it good and looks fine.”
Servis, who won the 2004 Derby and Preakness (G1) with Smarty Jones, won the Davona Dale in 2016 with Cash is King's Cathryn Sophia, who went on to win the Kentucky Oaks (G1) two starts later.
