Boisterous a Pacific Classic Possibility

Placing the hermetically sealed envelope near his head, Carnack The Magnificent divines the one-word answer: “Boisterous.”

Opening the envelope, the question is revealed: “What word describes the Del Mar Opening Day crowd and a Pacific Classic possibility.

Boisterous, a 6-year gelding who runs for the Kentucky Derby-winning connections of the Phipps Stable and trainer Shug McGaughey, won the Man o’ War Stakes last Saturday at Belmont Park by 2 ¼ lengths, covering 1 3/8 miles in 2:14.11 over a turf course rated “good.”

Afterward, McGaughey said there were three options for Boisterous’ next start.

“We’ll think about the Sword Dancer [Grade 1, August 17, Saratoga Race Course]. We’ll think about the Arlington Million [Grade 1, August 17, Arlington Park]. We’ll think about the Pacific Classic [Grade 1, August 25, Del Mar],” said McGaughey. “When we get up to Saratoga we’ll see how he’s doing.”
