Brad Grady’s Triple Chelsea is getting a little vacation after her victory Saturday in the $100,000 Giant’s Causeway (L) over European champion and 2017 race winner Lady Aurelia.
“She came out of the race great and will be going to (nearby) KESMARC (Kentucky Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center) for four days to take advantage of the hyperbaric chamber,” trainer Joe Sharp said Sunday morning. “Then we will bring her back to the barn.”
Triple Chelsea gave Grady, Sharp and jockey Adam Beschizza their first Keeneland stakes victories.
“Adam really got to know her this winter at Fair Grounds,” Sharp said. “A couple of races back in the race against Finley’sluckycharm, he found himself on the lead and she would wait on horses. She needs to have a target and then she is very tough.”
Triple Chelsea may return to the races next month in the $70,000 Unbridled Sidney at Churchill Downs on May 12.
“We are undecided now, but that would be the logical spot,” Sharp said. “We will take a look at it.”
