Flashpoint Gearing Up for King's Bishop

Flashpoint breaks maiden at Aqueduct (1-15-11).

Trainer Wesley Ward issued an upbeat bulletin following Flashpoint 1:00.03 five-furlong breeze on Sunday at Aqueduct Racetrack, where the colt gearing up for a start in Saturday’s Grade 1, seven-furlong Foxwoods King’s Bishop.

 

“It was smooth as silk, and everything went seamlessly,” said Ward, who trains the son of Pomeroy for Peachtree Stable. “He’s ready.”

 

The Foxwoods King’s Bishop will be the first start in a Grade 1 sprint for the multiple graded-stakes winner, who is unbeaten in three starts at seven furlongs or less. The race is expected to attract a contentious field that includes 2010 Champion Two-Year-Old Male Uncle Mo, Grade 2 Amsterdam winner Caleb’s Posse, and possibly The Factor, who worked six furlongs in 1:10, handily, at Del Mar yesterday.

 

“We’re not worried,” said Ward of the competition. “I’ve been training horses for 20 years, and the only thing I can control is my horse, and he’s ready.”
