Technical Analysis To Target QEII Challenge Cup At Keeneland After Lake Placid Win

After notching back-to-back graded stakes victories, trainer Chad Brown said Klaravich Stables’ Technical Analysis, winner of Saturday’s Grade 2 Lake Placid at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., will likely take things up a notch and point to the $500,000 Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup on October 15 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky.

The Irish-bred daughter of Kingman handled a minor stretch out in distance well in the 1 1/16-mile Lake Placid, contested over a yielding inner turf, kicking clear down the lane to win by 3 ½ lengths while garnering a career-best 92 Beyer. In her prior start, she won the Grade 3 Lake George at one mile, where she bested stablemate Fluffy Socks by 1 ¼ lengths.

While previously apprehensive of stretching Technical Analysis too far out in distance, Brown said he has noticed considerable improvement which is prompting him to try the nine-furlong Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup.

“The QE II is probably the main target for her,” said Brown, who won the Queen Elizabeth II with Dayatthespa [2012], Rushing Fall [2018] and Cambier Parc [2019]. “After the race yesterday, she’s really shown improvement, so I’m going to try stretching her out again.”

Boasting a consistent 6-4-0-1 record, Technical Analysis has banked $298,200 in earnings. She was selected out of the 2019 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale for just over $250,000.
