Entered up to run last week in a race that was eventually shelved, Zipessa finally gets to stretch her legs tomorrow in the $350,000 GIII Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf Stakes at Kentucky Downs.
It’s going to be a tough old contest. The mighty Miss Temple City (the heavy favorite) is one of seven other contenders in the mile race on the turf, and Zipessa is a 7-2 shot under jockey Joe Bravo to add to her black type haul.
Bravo is also down to ride Proforma in the $100,000 Allied Forces Stakes at Belmont Park one day later. Proforma is a multiple stake race winner already, and she’s an 8-1 shot to claim this six furlong sprint on the turf.
