Magical Lagoon (IRE, F3, bay)

- jogged 1,700m, cantered 1,700m on turf course (right-handed)
(exercised from 7:07 AM to 7:20 AM, ridden by Zara Caitlyn Nelson)

“She’s definitely woken up from the last two days—she’s come forward both days and doing the starting stalls yesterday—she knows it’s coming close to the race day. Today, she had a little trot on the grass and Zara said she was moving really really well. She also did a lap of nice canter. I couldn’t pull her up so I’m very happy with her. She seemed to love the grass, you can see that she was striding out really well on it. We’re very happy with everything she’s doing. Shane Foley arrives tomorrow so we’re going to do a stronger piece, good breeze, on dirt tomorrow. In Ireland, we only work on grass, maybe, once a month, and the dirt here is very close to our gallop at home, so we’re keeping it very similar to the way we train her in Ireland.”
