Multiple GSW Crazy Beautiful was on the track for the first time as a four-year-old this weekend as she works towards landing a so-far elusive Grade One.
Phoenix Thoroughbreds’ joint winning-most horse started a light work schedule this week as she builds towards some big targets and a return to the Breeders’ Cup in 2022. The daughter of Liam’s Map won four times last year, including her three Graded stakes wins, and trainer Kenny McPeek feels she could be even better in the coming 12 months.
“She’s had a had a little rest,” Said McPeek. “She had nearly six weeks out of training and she was back under tack at the weekend at our facility in Florida. She’s shown nothing but class her whole career, and I think 2022 could be even bigger for her.”
“Right now, I’m planning to get her started in either March or April. I’ll look to start her off in a Grade Three for her first start against older horses and we’ll see where that takes her from there.”
So far, the gorgeous grey has started four times at the top level and managed to finish runner up in the 2020 Alcibiades Stakes as a Juvenile.
“I’d like to think we can get her to the La Troienne or Apple Blossom at Oaklawn,” continued McPeek. “There are some nice races out there for her and it’s a long season, but I would hope we can finish up in the Breeders’ Cup come the fall.”
While landing a G1 will be a priority, connections have their eyes fixed on another milestone. Crazy Beautiful could reach a million dollars in prize money. She currently sits on $850,000 in career earnings.
