ANY assessment of Corazon is early, however, based on preliminary signals, this two-year-old bay filly seems to have more than just normal ability and is certainly one to watch.

Trained by Anthony Nunes and ridden by Dick Cardenas, Corazon ( Blue Pepsi LodgeMy Heartbeat) beat her maiden two-year-old rivals going over five furlongs straight winning by four lengths last Saturday.

Lady Blue (Omar Walker) was second, of a length ahead of Mystic Mamma (Wesley Henry).

Corazon posted an impressive time of 59.2 with splits of 22.3 and 45.3 in the two-year-old run.

Corazon got a good break from the one draw and began to tuck across to centre course but was behind the speed of Lady Blue.

Lady Blue, after passing the dummy rails with two furlongs (400m) to go, looked strong on the lead but as soon as they entered the final furlong (200m), Corazon, under tender handling, drew alongside before pulling away.

“It is too early yet to say how good she is. It is hard to tell that from this first run but this is a good first step. The time of 59.2 was not bad because she was running into a bit of head breeze but it's pretty good, we have nothing to complain about,” Nunes offered.

Corazon worked really well in the mornings and she was very easy doing so. This was maybe the hardest we have asked her to run so far and so she did well,” said Nunes
