Baby I'm Blue ran a strong 2nd on Friday at Charles Town. Breaking from the 5 post Baby I'm Blue was bumped by High End Gal shortly after the start then stalked the pace on the outside. She made a bid past the three-eighths pole, took the far turn in the three-path and assumed the lead at the three-sixteenths. She then dug in under moderate handling but was caught in the later yards and had to settle for second.

We spoke with trainer Brandon Kulp after the race. Brandon said, “She ran very well tonight. The distance might be just a bit too far for her. I only wish the rider had let her go as I instructed him to do.”

We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “This filly clearly has a liking for the Charles Town surface. She’s now got a win and a second in two career starts there. She’s a very one-dimensional horse that needs the lead to have any chance. I think the 7 furlong distance might just be a bit beyond her scope. It’s good to know we can run her there as an option. We’d like to try her on the grass to see if that moves her up any. Our plan is to try her in a turf race at Penn National and then evaluate the best strategy for a summer campaign.”

Baby I’m Blue earned $2,000 for Friday’s 2nd place finish.

Brandon will see how Baby I'm Blue comes out of the race and he’ll point her accordingly, possibly to a turf race at Penn National.
