Inglorious will get her shot at Queen's Plate glory.
The talented three-year-old bay filly was pronounced sound and ready by trainer Josie Carroll after her Sunday morning workout at Toronto's Woodbine Racetrack and will be entered in the $1-million Plate set for June 26.
"We really didn't make up our minds until today, [based] on how she came out of her workouts this week," Carroll told CBC Sports. "She went back to the track [Saturday] and jogged and today she galloped off of her work and that's when we made the final decision."
The filly turned heads on June 5 when she won the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks by just under a length, coming from off the pace as she likes to do under a strong ride by Luis Contreras.
Owner Vern Dubinsky and Carroll both said at the time they wanted to see how the next couple of weeks went before they committed Inglorious to the Run for the Guineas.
At 1¼ miles (10 furlongs), the Queen's Plate distance can be a challenge for fillies, but Carroll, who already has a Plate victory as a trainer, isn't concerned.
"Not with the way she's been running," she said.
Inglorious has bloodlines filled with speed and strength, including grand sire Storm Cat and through there to Storm Bird, Northern Dancer and Secretariat, plus dam sire Smart Strike and the classic Mr. Prospector.
Carroll knows how to see distance when others might be skeptical. She became the first female conditioner to win the Plate in 2006, sending out Edenwold, a horse some thought might not have 10 furlongs in him.
The only real concern for Inglorious is the projected size of the field — as many as 17.
"It's going to be a riders' and positioning race," she said.
