Letruska Puts In Final Preparations For Sunday’s Spinster At Keeneland

St. George Stable’s Letruska jogged once around the main track at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., Saturday morning as she readied herself for a run in Sunday’s $500,000 Grade 1 Juddmonte Spinster.

A winner of four consecutive races, including three Grade 1s, Letruska schooled in the Paddock during Friday afternoon’s third race and was a bundle of energy.

“That is normal for her,” trainer Fausto Gutierrez said. “We like to school two or three days before a race and on race day, she is good.”

Since winning the Grade 1 Personal Ensign Presented by Lia Infiniti on Aug. 28 at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Letruska has recorded two bullet works here in preparation for the Juddmonte Spinster. The stakes will serve as her final prep race for the $2 million Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif., on Nov. 6.

“I like to spend a lot of time here, and she knows this track very well,” said Gutierrez, who initially brought Letruska to Keeneland in May after she defeated champion Monomoy Girl in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark.

Letruska did the bulk of her work here prior to winning the Grade 1 Ogden Phipps at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., in June and the Personal Ensign.
