More dirt possible for She Be Wild

Email

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Trainer Wayne Catalano reports that his Eclipse Award winner She Be Wild came out of her fifth-place finish in Sunday's Grade 2 Forward Gal Stakes in good order, but he's not sure where she will run next.

The Forward Gal was She Be Wild's first start since sewing up her title with a victory in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, and her first ever on dirt.

Catalano said the seven-furlong distance of the Forward Gal was a bit short for She Be Wild, and he wished jockey Julien Leparoux had been more aggressive early in the race.

"Seven furlongs really isn't the perfect distance for her and I thought the rider probably should have taken advantage of the fact that she broke so alertly instead of taking her back after the start," he said. "She wound up getting shuffled and had to wheel up and go around horses. She never would have beaten the winner but she probably could have been second. I won't complain, though, because he gave me a perfect ride when it counted the most."

Catalano said he hasn't ruled out the possibility She Be Wild could come back again on dirt.

"We'll just let her cool out for a few more days, allow things to unfold, and then go from there," said Catalano.
