Sole Volante Breezes On Grass In Advance Of Kentucky Derby

Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and Andie Biancone’s Sole Volante breezed a mile Sunday morning on the turf at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream Park’s satellite training facility in Palm Beach County, Florida, in preparation for a scheduled start in the Sept. 5 Kentucky Derby (G1).

The Patrick Biancone-trained son of Karakontie was timed in 1:40 in his first breeze since finishing off the board in the June 20 Belmont Stakes (G1).

Sole Volante breezed in company, sitting off stablemate Shrewdness into the stretch before drawing clear without encouragement from Luca Panici.

“He worked really well,” said Andie Biancone, her father’s assistant trainer. “He’s doing great.”

Sole Volante captured the Pulpit Stakes, in which he defeated Tampa Bay Derby (G2) winner King Guillermo on turf, and finished third in the Mucho Macho Man at Gulfstream Park before capturing the Sam F. Davis (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs. He went on to finish second behind King Guillermo in the Tampa Bay Derby and win a stakes-quality allowance at Gulfstream before sustaining his first out-of-the-money finish in the Belmont.
