Woodbine: Inglorious gets rest of the season off

The 3-year-old filly Inglorious, winner of the Queen's Plate in June, will not race again until next year.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Inglorious, who suffered her first defeat at Woodbine when third in last Sunday’s Selene Stakes, will not see action again this season.

“She’s going to Ocala,” said Josie Carroll, who conditions Inglorious for the Donver Stable of Donna and Vern Dubinsky. “She’ll have a couple of months off.

“She’s had a long, hard campaign and a couple of rough trips in a row.”

Inglorious was undefeated in two starts at 2, winning the six-furlong Fanfreluche and the 1 1/16-mile Ontario Lassie.

After wintering with Carroll at Fair Grounds, where she finished third in the Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra at 1 1/16 miles and fourth in the Grade 2 Fair Grounds Oaks at 1 1/8 miles, Inglorious returned to Woodbine.

With jockey Luis Contreras taking over as her regular rider, Inglorious marched triumphantly through the 1 1/16-mile La Lorgnette, the 1 1/8-mile Woodbine Oaks, and the 1 1/4-mile Queen’s Plate.

Sent to Saratoga for her next start, Inglorious struggled with the surface and was well-beaten in the Grade 1 Alabama at 1 1/4 miles.

In the Grade 3 Selene, at 1 1/16 miles, Inglorious was competitive throughout but lacked her patented late kick and was beaten 3 3/4 lengths.

“She’s tired,” said Carroll. “She’s run in nine stakes since last November. She’s done enough.”

Inglorious has earned $1,113,000 this year and is a leading candidate for the Sovereign Award in the 3-year-old filly division.
