Petalino mulls options with filly Seacrettina


Seacrettina, winning the Silver Spur Stakes at Lone Star Park in July, could stay at Remington for the Gaylord Memorial or stretch out to two turns at Keeneland.P

Seacrettina, who owns the year's second highest Beyer Speed Figure for a 2-year-old filly, could make her next start at her home base of Remington Park or ship and run at Keeneland.

Trainer Joe Petalino on Wednesday was looking over his options for Seacrettina, who put up a Beyer of 95 in July when she won the $75,000 Silver Spur Breeders' Cup at Lone Star Park.

Seacrettina has raced once since then, facing colts in the $50,000 Clever Trevor at Remington on Sept. 1. She set a hot pace and held well for second in the six-furlong race. It was the third start for Seacrettina, who won a maiden special weight at Lone Star in May.

"She came back good," said Petalino, who trains Seacrettina for Baccari Racing. "I don't really know what we're going to do yet."

Petalino said he is considering stretching out Seacrettina around two turns at Keeneland. He also said she would be nominated to the $50,000 Gaylord Memorial, a 6 1/2-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies at Remington Oct. 18.

* Tanalian, who won a maiden special weight on turf at Churchill Downs in June, is one of a number of contenders in Friday night's featured eighth race at Remington, a first-level allowance at 7 1/2 furlongs on turf. Eddie Martin Jr. has the mount for trainer Randy Morse.
