Orpen Horses’ Jet Force will try to extend her record to a perfect 3-for-3 for trainer Jeremiah O’Dwyer in Sunday’s $100,000 Ruthless for sophomore fillies sprinting seven furlongs at Aqueduct Racetrack.
A chestnut daughter of Jimmy Creed, Jet Force graduated on debut at Penn National going 5 1/2 furlongs on December 21, taking a maiden special weight from off the pace by one length with regular pilot Jaime Rodriguez in the irons.
Ten days later, Jet Force made the step up to allowance company to face winners for the first time, changing up her tactics and setting the pace in the six-furlong sprint for Pennsylvania-breds at Penn National. Breaking alertly under Rodriguez, the 3-year-old filly came away the best of eight runners and never looked back, leading at every point of call to win convincingly by 2 3/4 lengths in a final time of 1:11.81.
“We’ve been quite happy with how she’s been improving and she seems to be doing well,” O’Dwyer said. “She’s a nice filly; strong, powerful and very willing. She sat off the pace and came on and beat them in her first race and then the second time she just bounced out and had loads of tactical speed. She used that to her advantage and coasted around at the front.
Rodriguez will ride again from post 3.
