Likely Fantasy Favorite Amy’s Challenge Fires Bullet At Oaklawn

It looks like they’ll be chasing Amy again in the $400,000 Fantasy Stakes (G3) for 3-year-old fillies Friday at Oaklawn after the multiple stakes winner completed major preparations with a half-mile bullet workout in :46.60 over a fast track Monday morning for trainer Mac Robertson.

Clockers caught Amy’s Challenge covering her last quarter-mile in a swift :22 and change” and galloping out 5 furlongs in :58.60 and 6 furlongs in 1:12.80.

Amy’s Challenge, in her two-turn debut, opened a long lead on the backstretch of the $200,000 Honeybee Stakes (G3) March 10 before being collared late by Cosmic Burst and suffering her first career loss. Amy’s Challenge had won her first three career starts, including the $125,000 Dixie Belle Stakes Jan. 20 in her 3-year-old debut.

Robertson also worked Tahoe Dream and Wynn Time Monday morning in advance of scheduled starts in the Fantasy and Saturday’s $400,000 Count Fleet Sprint Handicap (G3), respectively.

Tahoe Dream covered a half-mile in :48.80. Wynn Time went a half-mile in :48.40.

“I thought they all went pretty good,” Robertson said Tuesday morning.

Robertson said he believes Amy’s Challenge will be ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, Tahoe Dream by Alex Canchari and Wynn Time by Marcelino Pedroza.
