Bay Shore Hopefuls Breeze

Hardened Wildcat and Beggarthyneighbor breezed in company Sunday morning over the Belmont Park training track, covering five furlongs in 1:01.45. Both horses are expected to start next in Saturday’s Grade 3, $250,000 Bay Shore Stakes at seven furlongs.

 

“They breezed really well,” said Cherie DeVaux, assistant to trainer Chad Brown. “Chad didn’t want them to do too much, just work within themselves, and they did. They came out of it well, and they’ve been cooling out fine.”

 

Hardened Wildcat and Beggarthyneighbor finished 1-2, respectively in the six-furlong Fred “Cappy” Capossela over the inner track at Aqueduct on March 10. That win was the third consecutively for New Farm’s Hardened Wildcat, earning the gelded son of Hard Spun a career high Beyer Speed Figure of 98.

 

Beggarthyneighbor, a Half Ours colt who is campaigned by Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence, has never finished outside the trifecta in five lifetime starts, with a record of 2-1-2 including a stakes win at Laurel Park on January 28.

 

How Do I Win, a likely Bay Shore contender from the barn of Todd Pletcher, turned in his final work for the race on Friday, breezing a half-mile over the training track in 48.67.

 

How Do I Win was third in the Fred “Cappy” Capossela, having been turned back in distance after a pair of fourth-place finishes behind expected Wood starter Alpha in the Count Fleet (one mile, 70 yards) and the Grade 3 Withers (1 1/16 miles).

 

“We sort of had some lofty goals for him,” said Mike McCarthy, Pletcher’s assistant. “He showed a fair bit in Saratoga before he ever started, and he’s training well.”

 

In his lone start over Aqueduct’s main track last fall, the Repole Stable color-bearer galloped home a three-length allowance victor going six furlongs.
