Madaket Stables, Tim Cambron, Anna Cambron and Bradley Thoroughbreds’ La Signare has made four of her last six starts in Grade 1 company, completing the trifecta in the Jenny Wiley at Keeneland in April and the exacta last out in the Gamely in May at Santa Anita. On Saturday, the Brendan Walsh trainee will look to go one better in Saturday’s Grade 1 Diana at Saratoga.
Walsh said the 6-year-old French-bred daughter of Siyouni has proven herself against top-flight company ahead of Saturday’s nine-furlong inner turf test for older fillies and mares.
“She’s been in against the best of them and she hasn’t let us down,” said Walsh. “If the race sets up right for her then hopefully she’ll be there or thereabouts on Saturday. The more pace in front of her, the better.”
Walsh said La Signare, who boasts a career ledger of 18-3-3-4 and purse earnings of $405,576, always has her game face on.
“She’s a hard-trying filly and she puts in her ‘A’ effort every time,” said Walsh. “Hopefully, she’ll do that again on Saturday. We’re hoping that one of these days soon will be her day, it would be nice if it would be Saturday.”
La Signare made the grade with a front-running score in the 2018 Grade 3 Wonder Again traveling nine furlongs on the Belmont turf and will be looking for her first win since a three-quarter length score in the Sand Springs in March 2020 at Gulfstream.
La Signare will exit the inside post under Ricardo Santana, Jr.
