Notes: Former jockey Jose Corrales had his biggest victory as an owner-trai ner when this son of Student Council captured Pimlico s traditiona l G1 Preakness S. prep, the Federico Tesio S. on April 18. And now the 55-year-ol d native of Panama is set to step onto racing s biggest stage when Bodhisattv a runs in the second jewel of the Triple Crown over the same course on May 16. Though Bodhisattv a needed three more starts to break his maiden after debuting with a show finish in an early August maiden race at Penn National, the colt has only been out of the superfecta once in 11 starts when fifth in Aqueduct s G2 Remsen S. last November. He closed out his juvenile season with a neck win in a 1m optional claimer at Laurel Park in mid-Decemb er. Bodhisatta va began his sophomore campaign with consecutiv e fourth-pla ce finishes in 100,000 stakes at Laurel Park. With jockey Trevor McCarthy aboard for the first time, the colt chased Bridget s Big Luvy all the way for 1 1/8m before settling for second to that rival in Laurel s Private Terms S. on March 21. The duo tried a different strategy four weeks later in the Tesio and wired the six-horse field, covering the 1 1/16m in 1 45.18, which was good for a career best 96 BRIS Speed Rating. Bred in California by Andy Stronach, the chestnut is out of Dr. Cheryl P., a daughter of Talk Is Money, and was foaled on April 7, 2012. Stronach originally owned Bodhisattv a with a partner and gave the colt to Corrales, who trained for Stronach s father, Frank. Bodhisattv a has earned 165,095 for Corrales while running his record to 11-3-1-4 over six different tracks. McCarthy is expected to be back in the irons for the Preakness.
