Undefeated Amy’s Challenge (Artie Schiller) is set to return to the work tab early this week as she prepares to stretch out in trip for the first time in the GIII Honeybee S. at Oaklawn Park Mar. 10.
Owned by Joe Novogratz and trained by McLean Robertson, the dark bay bested the boys in a pair of juvenile appearances, including a tough win in the Shakopee Juvenile S. The $20,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky bargain made it three-for-three in her career with a hard-fought defeat of ‘TDN Rising Star’ Mia Mischief (Into Mischief) in the six-furlong Dixie Belle S. at the Hot Springs oval Jan. 20.
The Honeybee is the final local prep for the GIII Fantasy S. Apr. 13.
