She'll Be Doggone retired with broken foot


She'll Be Doggone, who was taken up sharply in the stretch as the 4-5 favorite in the Grade 3 Comely Stakes on April 10, has been diagnosed with a broken foot and has been retired, trainer Tony Dutrow said. Dutrow said owner Morris Bailey plans to breed She'll Be Dogone this year, though he has not yet booked a stallion.

She'll Be Doggone had won her two previous starts before the Comely.

"I never really said much about her, but I felt she was a very good one,'' said Dutrow, who was critical of jockey Edgar Prado's ride aboard She'll Be Doggone.

Dutrow did report that Cat Moves, his Grade 1-winning 3-year-old sprinting filly from 2009, is nearing a return to the races. Winner of the Prioress last year, Cat Moves could make her return in the $150,000 Vagrancy at Belmont or the $250,000 My Juliet at Philadelphia Park. Both races are on May 29.

On Wednesday, Cat Moves worked five furlongs in 1:00.40, her third straight bullet work at Delaware Park. Cat Moves has not run since finishing fifth in the Grade 3 Fitz Dixon Cotillion last fall.
