Busy Weekend for McLaughlin

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin will likely be well-represented in next weekend’s stakes at Belmont and sent out two potential contenders for their final workouts Sunday morning at Belmont. 

 

Redding Colliery, most recently second in the Grade 3 Iselin at Monmouth Park on August 21, breezed five furlongs over the main track in 1:02.04 and McLaughlin said the Jockey Club Gold Cup was a definite possibility for the Mineshaft colt.

 

“He worked very well and we’re taking a good look at the Gold Cup here,” the trainer said. “Tranquil Manner is likely, also, it’s a big purse and he’s doing well.”

 

Tranquil Manner, a willing third behind Quality Road in the Grade 1 Woodward at Saratoga on September 4, worked four furlongs at Greentree Training Center in Saratoga on September 18, covering the distance in 47.00.

 

Also on the worktab Sunday at Belmont for McLaughlin was Grade 3 With Anticipation winner Soldat, who went in company with German-bred filly Neon Light. Both were caught in 47.88 for a half-mile over the firm inner turf course, the fastest of seven at the distance. Soldat will make his next start in the Grade 3, $150,000 Pilgrim on October 3, McLaughlin said, with the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf a goal. 

 

The Pilgrim is a Breeders’ Cup Challenge Race, earning the winner an automatic starting berth in the Juvenile Turf on November 6 at Churchill Downs. 

 

Looking ahead, McLaughlin said that turf runners Lethal Combination, winner of the Grade 3 Saranac at Saratoga on September 5, and Krypton, third in the Grade 2 National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame on August 13, would both be pointed toward the Grade 1, $250,000 Jamaica Handicap at Belmont on October 9. 

 

Krypton posted a 49.10 four-furlong work over the Oklahoma Training Track at Saratoga on Sunday morning.
