Can Caleb's Posse Run Another Smasher?

Since its inception in 1993, just three Amsterdam winners have gone on to take the Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop: Chimes Band (1994), Secret Firm (1998) and Discreetly Mine (2010). This year, trainer Donnie Von Hemel is hoping Caleb’s Posse becomes the next 3-year-old to be added to that list after Saturday’s race.

 

Sent off at 12-1, Caleb’s Posse made a five-wide rally at the top of the stretch to win the Grade 2 Amsterdam by four lengths on August 1. This year’s Foxwoods King’s Bishop, which will be run for the 27th time, is shaping up as an extraordinarily competitive race with the return of juvenile champion Uncle Mo and graded stakes winners Flashpoint, Dominus, and Justin Phillip.

 

“The Amsterdam was probably the best race of his life. I thought he could compete in that race, but I was surprised that he dominated the last part of the race,” Von Hemel said. “Can he repeat that? The competition is a little tougher this time around. We’re going to see what he can do. He had a nice gallop at dawn, then schooled in the paddock. Everything looks good.”
