Mr. Fantasy came out of Saturday’s work in great shape. He is scheduled to have his last work in preparation for the Vosburgh on Sunday or Monday. Click here to see a video of Saturday’s work
Phosphorescent is set to breeze over the weekend. Dr. Hanf will scope him after the work as a precaution before the race. We are on target for the $100,000 Maryland Million Turf Sprint on Saturday, October 2nd at Laurel. Nominations close for the race tomorrow. Phosphorescent has been nominated to the race. We enter a week from today. Victor Molina remains our pilot even though Phos was feeling so good on Tuesday that he tried to dump him
Brave Monarch continues galloping each morning at Belmont. Mike wants to give him an extra week of galloping before resuming speed work. This colt is doing great physically; Mike just wants to get some extra fitness back into him before he starts back on the worktab. We remain on target to see this colt debut in November if all goes well.
The Defense Rests continues walking the shedrow twice daily at Kirkwood Farm. Kip Elser has been at the Keeneland yearling sales, and is set to return to the farm over the weekend. He wants to take a look over this colt before he goes back into training. He expects he will resume jogging in early October with the plan of galloping in November. We have mentioned the possibility of sending this horse to both New York and Florida once he gets a foundation back underneath him. Once he starts speedwork at Kirkwood, we will confer with Mike Hushion and see where he would like him go to continue training for a return to the races
