Emcee Prepares for Vanderbilt

One of the most exciting sprinters in the country, Godolphin Stable's Emcee, is preparing for the Grade 1, $400,000 Alfred G. Vanderbilt.

The son of Unbridled's Song, trained by Kiaran McLaughlin has won three of five starts, with losses coming in the Grade 3 Tom Fool and Grade 1 Carter at Aqueduct.

"He is doing great and pointing toward the Vanderbilt," said McLaughlin, who has worked Emcee steadily at the Greentree Training Center, with one visit to the main track since his last start on May 5. On that day, Emcee dropped from the Carter, one of the top sprints in the country, to a $50,000 allowance optional claimer and crushed the field by 4 ½ lengths, running seven furlongs in 1:21.78.

Emcee's most recent work came July 22, when he worked five furlongs in 59 seconds flat at Greentree.

"He's a fast horse and a good sprinter," McLaughlin said. "I hope I never stretch him out."
