Filly Ria Antonia Might Run Vs. Males In Preakness

BALTIMORE (AP) — Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Ria Antonia is a possibility to run against male horses in the Preakness Stakes.

If she is sent to Pimlico to run in the middle leg of the Triple Crown on May 17, Ria Antonia will be saddled by a new trainer. The filly’s owners transferred her from the barn of Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert to Tom Amoss after she finished sixth in the Kentucky Oaks last week at Churchill Downs.

If Ria Antonia takes on the boys, including Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, she would try to become the sixth filly to win the Preakness. Rachel Alexandra was the most recent filly to win in 2009.

Amoss says he’ll talk to Ria Antonia’s owner early next week about running her in the Preakness.

California Chrome is to return to the Churchill track for a jog on Wednesday.
