Woodbine: Androeah could be ready to emerge in allowance feature

Email

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – There is no stakes Saturday at Woodbine, and the 10-race card includes just one allowance, the eighth, of the first-level variety. The 1 1/16-mile event could be the coming out party for the well-bred 3-year-old filly Androeah.

Androeah was a minor player in her first two outings last August. She subsequently changed trainers after a sale, and Josie Carroll sent her out on Lasix to win a 1 1/16-mile maiden special for Hill n Dale Equine Holdings Inc. following a layoff Oct. 19.

Androeah was bet down to favoritism in a nine-furlong allowance Nov. 16. After breaking a tad slowly, she put in a mild wide rally for third, earning her second straight Beyer Speed Figure in the mid 70s in the process.

Jesse Campbell has mount on Androeah, who is a full sister to Grade 1 Arkansas Derby winner Archarcharch.

Roman Damsel outran Androeah for second after mounting an inside bid from the back of the pack Nov. 16. She was previously victorious in back-to-back low-level claimers.

David Moran, who was aboard for two of Roman Damsel’s three scores this year, will ride the Mike Doyle-trained mare.

Golden Girl Sue figures to lead the way under Michelle Rainford. She wired $12,500 opposition when she was claimed Sept. 1 by trainer Scott Fairlie.

In her three starts for Fairlie, Golden Girl Sue was second and fourth in a pair of allowances, before capturing a $25,000 claimer over Hold That Echo on Nov. 18.

Cry War Eagle has run four solid races in as many starts for trainer Brian Lynch. She wound up on the edges in two maiden special turf routes in August and then graduated over a mile and 70 yards on the Polytrack on Sept. 22. Most recently on Oct. 26, she dead-heated for second in an allowance won by Hold That Echo.

Luis Contreras will ride Cry War Eagle again for Amerman Racing, which campaigns the local stakes winner Blue Heart.

Bear’s Kitty Kitty defeated $32,000 maidens at first asking in November of last year, when she was claimed by trainer Sid Attard.

After an extended layoff, Bear’s Kitty Kitty won a $40,000 sprint by a nose and was subsequently fifth in a six-furlong allowance. Her dam has thrown two route winners on the main track, so she has a license to handle the stretch out in distance.

Baganara has been idle since running seventh in a difficult Sept. 23 allowance, which was won by Pure Blue Sky.
