Choose Joy Goes for Hat Trick in Saturday’s Miami Shores

Sep 30, 2021
Frequent Winner on Turf, Dirt Tries Tapeta at Gulfstream     
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – A frequent winner on turf and dirt, trainer Steve Dwoskin’s Choose Joy is scheduled to try an all-weather surface for the first time in Saturday’s $60,000 Miami Shores at Gulfstream Park.

A convincing winner in her two most recent performances in overnight handicaps while carrying 124 and 125 pounds, respectively, Choose Joy will go for the hat trick while carrying highweight of 126 pounds in the 5 ½-furlong overnight handicap on Gulfstream’s newly installed Tapeta track.

“[Wednesday] we took her on it and galloped her with the jockey who rides her, Miguel Vasquez, to see how she handles the going. He said she loves it. Hopefully, she loves it as much as she loves the turf,” Dwoskin said.

All but one of the eight fillies and mares are scheduled to run on an all-weather surface for the first time in the Miami Shores, carded as Race 8 on a 10-race program that will get underway at 12:50 p.m.

Choose Joy won two of five dirt starts to begin her career before trying turf, over which she has been first or second in all six starts, including four victories.

“She’s sound. She loves to run,” Dwoskin said. “She’s very easy to train. We expect her to run good.”

The 4-year-old daughter of Munnings will concede between eight and nine pounds to her rivals.

“She’s a very well-put-together filly, not big, but very well balanced,” Dwoskin said. “I’m not too worried about the weight because most of them are the same horses she beat last time.”

Whisper Hill Farm LLC’s Bernie’s Mistress has been assigned 117 pounds while being on the receiving end of a two-pound weight shift from Choose Joy. The Kent Sweezey-trained 5-year-old daughter of Bernardini was caught up in traffic before closing strongly to finish just a length behind by Choose Joy by a length last time out.

Samy Camacho will be back in the irons.

Sam Wilensky’s Drop a Hint, graded stakes-placed on turf, enters the Miami Shores off a victory in an off-the-turf five-furlong allowance at Gulfstream. The victory was the Herman Wilensky-trained 4-year-old daughter of Into Mischief’s first in 11 races since her maiden score, but she has been stakes-placed on turf on multiple occasions.

Mercy Man Racing’s Naughty Shirley is scheduled to make her first start for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. Saturday. The 5-year-old Iowa-bred mare has won two of four starts on dirt this year.

Emisael Jaramillo will ride Naughty Shirley for the first time.

C J Thoroughbreds LLC’s Moon of Love is the only horse in the Miami Shores field with experience on an all-weather surface, having broken her maiden on it in England before finishing second in a Turfway Park allowance on Polytrack in her first U.S. start in February. A winner on turf at Indiana Grand, the Cam Gambolati-trained 4-year-old daughter of Kodiak finished fourth in her two most recent tries over Arlington’s all-weather track.

Larry Bell’s Cat’s Astray, who set the pace before finishing third behind Choose Joy and Bernie’s Mistress last time out; Imaginary Stables, Louis Mairone and Carmen Pinto’s Awsum Roar, a troubled sixth in a recent Saratoga allowance; and Thoroughbred Champions Training Center LLC’s Mudslide Wicked round out the field.
