Florida-bred Foggy Night Set for Saturday's Mother Goose


Florida-bred Foggy Night will try for her second graded-stakes victory of the year when she goes to the post in the Grade 2 Mother Goose at Belmont Park Saturday. The daughter of Journeyman Stud’s leading Florida sire Khozan is 15-1 on the morning line of the $250,000 Mother Goose, a nine-furlong contest for 3-year-old fillies.

Trained by Robert Reid for Pine Brook Farm, Foggy Night has two stakes victories this year including the Grade 3 Delaware Oaks at a mile-and-a-sixteenth on July 1 and the $200,000 Cathryn Sophia going a mile-and-70-yards at Parx Racing on Aug. 22.
