Unbeaten 'Rising Star' Radio Days Returns in Forward Gal


Radio Days | Chelsea Durand

Unbeaten 'TDN Rising Star' Radio Days (Gun Runner) launches her sophomore campaign in Saturday's GIII Forward Gal S. at Gulfstream Park.

Owned by Allen Stable Inc. and trained by Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey, the $750,000 KEESEP graduate made it two-for-two in a blowout optional claiming victory at this same seven-furlong distance at Aqueduct last time Dec. 2. Her worktab includes a four-furlong bullet in :48 3/5 (1/19) at Payson Jan. 12.

“She's a filly we're really excited about. Her first two races have been really good,” McGaughey said. “She's had a little bit of a break now. She's going to run Saturday, and hopefully her future is ahead of her.”

Diamond Wow (Lookin At Lucky), winner of the rained-off Our Dear Peggy S. over course and distance Sept. 18, just missed by a head in her latest going two turns over grass in Keeneland's GII JP Morgan Chase Jessamine S. Oct. 13.

“We gave her a break and she has grown and developed well. We're happy with the way she's worked,” trainer Patrick Biancone said. “It's a comeback race. She is not perhaps 100% yet but it's time to come back and prepare for the spring.”

Girl With a Dream (Practical Joke) enters riding a two-race winning streak for Brad Cox, led by a wire-to-wire tally in the Letellier Memorial S. at Fair Grounds last time Dec. 27.
