Campanelle Tops Franklin County


CampanelleScoop Dyga

Stonestreet Stables' Campanelle (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}) headlines Friday's GIII Buffalo Trace Franklin County S. at Keeneland. A debut winner at Gulfstream in 2020, she took Royal Ascot's G2 Queen Mary S. a month later and followed suit with a win in Deauville's G1 Prix Morny S. that August. Fourth in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at this venue last November, the bay came up a head short in the G1 Commonwealth Cup back at Royal Ascot June 18, but was promoted to first when the winner was disqualified. Campanelle was last seen finishing 12th back at Deauville in the G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest Aug. 8 and is likely using this event as a prep for the Breeders' Cup.

Al Stall saddles a live contender in Bal Mar Equine's In Good Spirits (Ghostzapper). An optional claimer winner at Fair Grounds Jan. 30, she was fourth in the course-and-distance Giant's Causeway S. Apr. 10, which was won by the re-opposing Change of Control (Fed Biz). Runner-up in Saratoga's GIII Caress S. July 24, the bay captured the GIII Kentucky Downs Ladies Sprint S. Sept. 11, defeating Catch a Bid (Real Solution) by two lengths.

Change of Control captured the GIII Intercontinental S. At Belmont June 3 and was third in the GII Royal North S. at Woodbine next out Aug. 1. She enters off a 10th in the GI Woodbine Mile Sept. 18.
