Amazing Anne is not called amazing for nothing. After running at Saratoga July 26, the Tom Morley trainee will return for not one but two races this week, under the stipulation that she comes out of the New York Stallion Series Stakes in good condition. She will then start in the filly division of the same race on Thursday.
"This is a real opportunity for her to pick up black type maybe twice in a week," Morley said Sunday morning near his shedrow. "And there are very few opportunities for a filly like this. She's by Freud, I've trained a lot of the family. The last three foals out of the mare I've had, and they love this grass course here."
The 3-year-old filly will face six talented colts in the $100,000 New York Stallion Series, including Possessed, who won a New York Stallion Series Stakes in June at Belmont.
"I keep a close eye on all these divisions, but I kind of knew the field that I was going to be facing in this boys' race, and I kind of fancy my chances against them," Morley said.
