Boisterous Confirmed for Fort Marcy

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will present its first graded turf stakes of the year, Belmont Park’s Grade 3 Fort Marcy, in 22 days, and Phipps Stable’s two-time graded stakes winner Boisterous has already been confirmed for the 1 1/16-mile race.

 

The Fort Marcy will be the second start of 2012 for Boisterous, who closed out his 2011 campaign by winning the Grade 3 Knickerbocker at Belmont and Grade 2 Red Smith Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack. He’ll enter the Fort Marcy having beat two horses when fourth in his most recent outing, a one-mile optional claimer at Gulfstream Park on March 18.

 

“His race down at Gulfstream was fair, but that turf probably doesn’t suit him,” said Robbie Medina, assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey. “It’s a hard, short turf, and he wants a little different kind of course. He’ll run well in the Fort Marcy, even though it’s a shorter trip for him.”

 

With Boisterous having won the 1 3/8-mile Red Smith, the McGaughey barn plans to point the 5-year-old toward longer races following the Fort Marcy.

 

“I assume the Man o’ War [Grade 1, 1 3/8 miles, Belmont Park, July 14] will be a long-term goal for him,” said Medina. “How we’ll get there, I don’t know.”
