Dontletsweetfoolya to scratch from $100K Correction

OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Five Hellions Farm’s multiple stakes winner Dontletsweetfoolya will scratch from Saturday’s $100,000 Correction at the Big A in favor of an allowance sprint on Sunday at Laurel Park.

“With the weather coming in this weekend it makes sense to sit still,” said trainer Lacey Gaudet.

Dontletsweetfoolya put together a five-race win streak as a sophomore, beginning with a 9 1/2-length romp in the slop in July 2020 at Laurel Park and included stakes scores in the Primonetta in November 2020 and the Willa On the Move one month later at the same track.

The 5-year-old Stay Thirsty mare finished off-the-board last out in the 6 1/2-furlong Wishing Well on January 29 over the Turfway Park synthetic.

Jevian Toledo will pilot Dontletsweetfoolya from the inside post in Race 8 Sunday at Laurel.

KEM Stables and Five Hellions Farm’s H P Moon, a $100,000 Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase purchase, garnered an 81 Beyer in a 9 3/4-length debut win sprinting six furlongs in August at Pimlico Race Course.

The 3-year-old Malibu Moon ridgling followed with an off-the-board effort as the mutuel favorite in the seven-furlong Spectacular Bid on January 29 at Laurel.

H P Moon worked a half-mile in 48.60 March 6 at Laurel in his first breeze back following a throat surgery.

“He’s doing well,” Gaudet said. “He’d always had a displacement issue with his breathing. We gave him some time and did a minor throat surgery on him. He’s coming back really well and had a really nice work the other day. His attitude has been much better since and hopefully that’s the main reason he ran so poorly last time.”

Gaudet said H P Moon will be pointed to an allowance race at Keeneland.

“We’ll take him to Keeneland and try an allowance race there and then see where we go after that,” Gaudet said.

Gaudet said she expects to return to New York this spring at Belmont with Five Hellions Farm’s sophomore The Man to See, a New York-bred gelding, who graduated on the Laurel turf in October.

The Bodemeister bay is out of the unraced Tapizar mare Winsanity, who is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Ready Signal.

“The Man to See will definitely be up there for a summer campaign. We’ll be up there for the spring and Saratoga. We have a couple of nice New York-bred babies from nice mares that we’re looking forward to,” Gaudet said.
