Queen Elizabeth II Invitees Work Over Keeneland Turf Course

Three fillies who were extended invitations to next Saturday’s Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Presented by Dixiana tested the Keeneland turf course Saturday morning at the Lexington, Ky., track.

Trainer Chad Brown’s stakes-winning duo of Shantisara (IRE) and Technical Analysis (IRE) worked five furlongs together in 1:03.40 and 1:03.60, respectively. Trainer Donnacha O’Brien’s Nicest (IRE) worked 5 furlongs in 1:06 with jockey Julien Leparoux aboard.

Also working on the course labeled good was Diamond Wow for trainer Patrick Biancone.

With assistant Andie Biancone aboard, Diamond Wow breezed 3 furlongs in :39.80 for Wednesday’s Grade 2 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine. Diamond Wow was scratched out of Friday’s Grade 1 Darley Alcibiades after drawing post 11.

“I think she would have been competitive yesterday,” Andie Biancone said about Diamond Wow, who drew the far outside post 14 for the Jessamine. “I am not as concerned with the outside draw on the turf as on the dirt.”
