Bridgetown eyes BC Turf Sprint

Bridgetown returns to Woodbine on Saturday in the $500,000 Nearctic Stakes, and the rapid 3-year-old should be prominent throughout the six-furlong turf sprint. Along with first money, the winner of the Grade 1 event will receive an automatic berth in the Nov. 6 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs.

Bridgetown captured the Grade 3 Summer Stakes here last fall, before ending up second as the pacemaker in the Grade 2 BC Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita. He went to the sidelines for nine months after ending up fourth in the Grade 3 Generous Stakes in November at Hollywood.

Bridgetown has won both his starts at 5 1/2 furlongs this summer. He took the Latham Stakes from off the pace at Saratoga, and the Gilded Time Stakes on the lead at Monmouth.

Trainer Ken McPeek said Bridgetown has trained encouragingly leading up to the Nearctic, and he's hoping to use the race as a springboard to the BC Turf Sprint. Read More
