A BC Tuneup for Campanelle 

October 21, 2022

LEXINGTON, Ky.—Stonestreet Stables’ Campanelle (IRE) continued working toward an expected start in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) here on Nov. 5 by working 5 furlongs in 1:01.40 on her own over a firm course Friday morning. 

“That was a good work,” trainer Wesley Ward said of Campanelle, who was fourth here in the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) in her previous start in the World Championships. 

The highweighted 2-year-old filly in England and France in 2020 when she won the Queen Mary (G2) at Royal Ascot in England and the Darley Prix Morny (G1) at Deauville in France, Campanelle worked for the third time since taking the Mint Ladies Sprint (G3) at Kentucky Downs going 6½ furlongs on Sept. 10.

Another Breeders’ Cup candidate for Ward is multiple graded stakes winner Kimari. Ward is looking at the 6-furlong Sprint (G1) against males or the 7-furlong Filly and Mare Sprint (G1). 

The deadline for pre-entries for the Breeders’ Cup is noon ET on Monday.
