‘Ready To Take Our Shot’: Romans’ Breeders’ Cup Brigade Led By Juveniles Girl Daddy, Sittin On GO

Trainer Dale Romans had a monumental Kentucky Derby week with Albaugh Family Stable’s duo of stakes winners Girl Daddy and Sittin On Go. The twosome will join three other Romans trainees in next weekend’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland.

“It was a really great week to win both the Pocahontas (Grade 3) and Iroquois (G3),” Romans said. “We’re coming into the Breeders’ Cup with some good chances and ready to take our shot. I think that across the board each of the Breeders’ Cup races are shaping up to be competitive. It’s fun getting to compete on this stage and seeing who is the best of the best.”

Sittin On Go, a 2-year-old undefeated son of former Romans-trained Brody’s Cause, is one of the top contenders for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1). Also scheduled to join him in the starting gate is Albaugh’s maiden winner Smiley Sobotka.

Girl Daddy, who won the $200,000 Pocahontas by two lengths, is likely to face seven rivals in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1).

“Obviously, long term, you always have next year’s Kentucky Derby and Oaks in the back of your mind,” Romans said. “These horses have shown they have potential to get to that level in the future.”

Romans also pre-entered CJ Thoroughbreds, Left Turn Racing and Casner Racing’s $500,000 Derby City Distaff (GI) third-place finisher Sally’s Curlin to the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (GI) and Jim Bakke and Gerald Isbister’s $200,000 Fayette (GII) hero Mr Freeze to the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (GI).

All five horses are expected to have their final works prior to the Breeders’ Cup Friday or Saturday. They will ship to Keeneland on Monday, according to Romans.
