Nellie Cashman had her final breeze in preparation for the G3 Suwannee River this weekend at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale FL. The $150,000 race is contested over a mile and eighth on the turf and will draw some very nice fillies from the East coast.
Nellie is doing well and has put in a series of nice workouts culminating in a 4 furlong work on Saturday at Palm Beach Downs in 49.19 seconds. We won't know exactly who she faces until entries come out Wednesday afternoon.
Forest will be riding at Santa Anita this weekend for Graham Motion but we have been able to secure Graham’s regular jockey Rajiv Maragh who rode last years Champion turf horse, Main Sequence. So he is an able replacement.
We will let you know more after entries come out Wednesday!
