Blazing Sevens Possible for Met Mile

Blazing Sevens | Sarah Andrew

Rodeo Creek Racing's Blazing Sevens (Good Magic), who returned from a nine-month layoff to capture a one-mile allowance and earn a 97 Beyer at Aqueduct Saturday, may make his next start in the June 8 GI Hill 'n' Dale Metropolitan H.

“He had a wide journey and was fit enough to gut it out in a fairly quick time. We'll see how he comes out of the race and go from there, but I'll consider a race like the Met Mile,” said trainer Chad Brown. “I think he's good enough. It's quite a tough race, but that's at the top of my list.”

The 'TDN Rising Star' won the 2022 GI Champagne S. and missed by just a head when second to National Treasure (Quality Road) in the GI Preakness S. last year. He was making his first start Saturday since finishing third in the Curlin S. at Saratoga last July.

John Capek of Rodeo Creek Racing said he was impressed with Saturday's performance after the time off.

“We are glad to have him back on the track. After nine months off, I think he ran well,” said Capek. “He got a little bit of a challenge coming out of the gate, but he showed his capability in the turn.”
