Trainer Tom Amoss sent graded stakes winners and Breeders’ Cup runners Serengeti Empress and Lone Sailor to GoldMark Farm in Ocala, Fla., for some downtime during the remainder of the year, but has already made plans for their early 2019 campaigns.

A runaway 19½-length winner of Churchill Downs’ Pocahontas Stakes (G2), Serengeti Empress last finished seventh in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies. Amoss stated that she would return to his barn at Fair Grounds at the beginning of the New Year with the long term goal being the Grade 2, $400,000 Fair Grounds Oaks on March 23, the final of three local preps leading to the Kentucky Oaks.
