Elnaawi, targeting the Wood Memorial off a third in the Gotham, is scheduled to breeze four furlongs on Saturday at
Park, according to Art Magnuson, assistant to trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.
Prior to the
Gotham, Elnaawi broke his maiden by
four lengths in January at Aqueduct in his second start. The dark bay
colt is a half-brother to 2011 Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap and 2012
Grade 1 Woodward winner To Honor and Serve.
Magnuson added that Godolpin Racing’s
Consortium, a contender for the Grade 1 Carter Handicap
on the Wood Memorial undercard off a fourth in the Grade 3 Tom Fool
Handicap, likely will return to the worktab next week.
