Ever So Lucky Shoots for King's Bishop

Ever So Lucky wins his debut

Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard said Monday morning he will run Ever So Lucky in the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King’s Bishop on the Travers Day card. The seven-furlong race is expected to attract the top 3-year-old sprinters in the country, including Currency Swap and Trinniberg.

 

Ever So Lucky, owned by Augustin Stable, will turn back in distance for the Foxwoods King’s Bishop off a third-place finish in the 1 1/8-mile Curlin on July 27. The Indian Charlie colt has toggled between sprints and routes and was third in the Grade 3 Swale behind Trinniberg at the Foxwoods King’s Bishop distance in March at Gulfstream Park .

 

“I think we’re going to give it a shot,” Sheppard said. “We just like Saratoga. We like to run here. It’s a good distance for him. We wouldn’t ship up here for this, but he’s been here since the Curlin, and he likes it up here. We realize we’re in the deep water.”

 

Sheppard also said recent Hall of fame inductee John Velazquez wanted to retain the mount for the race, “and that’s a good impetus for us to do it.”
