Frankie Dettori To Ride Argentine Group 1 Winner Blue Stripe In Distaff

Blue Stripe, the half-sister to 2019 Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Blue Prize, is aimed at this year’s edition of the Distaff at Del Mar. According to the Daily Racing Form, jockey Frankie Dettori has been booked to ride the Argentinian Group 1 winner Blue Stripe for local trainer Marcelo Polanco.

The 4-year-old daughter of Equal Stripes won four of her six starts in Argentina for trainer Nicolas Martin Ferro. Blue Stripe won her last start on May 1 in the Group 1 Gran Premio Criadores, a “Win and You’re In” for the Distaff, and has since been based in California.

Blue Stripe has been working steadily since June 30 at both Santa Anita and Del Mar, building up to work as far as seven furlongs on both Sept. 3 and Oct. 4.

Blue Stripe and Blue Prize are both out of the Not For Sale mare Blues For Sale, a three-time group winner in Argentina.
