Belmont Park: No plans for Discreet Marq after Sands Point win

With her victory in Monday’s Sands Point, Discreet Marq is now 3 for 8 with two stakes wins.

Discreet Marq came out of her three-quarter-length victory in Monday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Sands Point Stakes in good order, said trainer Christophe Clement, who added he has not thought ahead to where the 3-year-old filly may run next.

“A mile and a sixteenth on turf, no problem,” Clement said. “Would she like to go further? I don’t know. She looked in complete control every step of the race, let’s see how she trains. Most races are going a mile and a sixteenth.”

If Clement wanted to try and stretch Discreet Marq out a little farther, there is the Grade 3, $150,000 Virginia Oaks going 1 1/8 miles at Colonial Downs on July 13.

Perhaps a more logical spot this summer is the Grade 2, $200,000 Lake George going 1 1/16 miles at Saratoga on July 24.

Discreet Marq, a New York-bred daughter of Discreet Cat owned and bred by Patricia Generazio, is now 3 for 8 with two stakes wins.
