Turallure arrives early at Woodbine for the Woodbine Mile and he is looking good after his Bernard Baruch success.
Turallure, trained by Charles Lopresti, is coming off a performance right from the top drawer after he finished fast in the Grade 2 Bernard Baruch on turf. The 4-year-old is now eager to get it the $1 million pursed Grade 1 Woodbine Mile at Woodbine on 18
September, 2011.
The Wando colt, arrived from Kentucky on the morning of 12 September, and currently he is the lone shipper there.
In the Bernard Baruch, the pacey 4-year-old colt picked up his fastest graded stakes' victory of his career, when he toyed around with the favoured Get Stormy and finally deciding to move on and win the Grade 2 $200,000 Bernard Baruch at Saratoga.
The race was run over a distance of 1 1/8 miles over turf on 26 August, 2011, and jockey J Leparoux was aboard Turallure, as they topped the distance in 1 minute and 48.75 seconds.
This was Turallure’s second win of the year 2011, and the previous one came in the Opening Verse over the turf course of Churchill Downs.
It was a fine performance by the Four D Stable’s Turallure, who went on to split horses in the mid-stretch and gradually wore down the massively built Tajaaweed to win the $74,874 Open Verse, narrowly by a length, on 17 June, 2011.
Again under jockey J Leparoux, the colt completed the distance of 1 1/16 miles in 1 minute and 40.41 seconds on grass.
Out of Personal Allure by Wekiva Springs, Turallure will not have it easy in the Woodbine Mile, and he will have to see off the likes of Courageous Cat, who went on to win the Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile at Hollywood Park in his last start.
The competition doesn’t get slimmer from there, as the 2010 Woodbine Mile winner, Court Vision, is also bidding to repeat last year’s glory run yet again to sink his teeth in the heavy purse the race carries.
There is more as the European side of the competition includes Dance and Dance, Side Glance and Forte dei Marmi for the Woodbine Mile.
It is an expected field of 11 to 12 runners and it will be announced on the ceremonial draw at Woodbine on 15 September, 2011.
