B Shanny Returns to Saratoga

B Shanny, one of the most promising maiden winners of the 2011 meet at Saratoga, returns for his second start of the year in Sunday’s fifth race, a 5 ½-furlong optional-claiming race for New York-breds.

Owned by former New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) president and CEO Barry Schwartz and trained by Michael Hushion, the 3-year-old son of Street Cry debuted last July at Belmont Park and finished second in a race that produced four next-out winners. 

B Shanny was one of them, breaking his maiden last August 20 at Saratoga, running seven furlongs in 1:24.03 while defeating subsequent graded stakes winner El Padrino; Five Sixteen, who finished fifth in the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes and second in the recent Curlin Stakes; and News Pending, who went on to place second behind eventual Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags in the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth.

Unfortunately, B Shanny suffered a bone chip in his knee and went to the sidelines while preparing for a run in the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park.

In his comeback on June 16 at Belmont, B Shanny was beaten by a nose by Notmyfirsttime in a six-furlong race that went in 1:10.41.

Hushion said B Shanny is ready to go Sunday and he is “hopeful for a stakes race” down the road.
