Fortify Prepares for Hopeful

Fortify breaks maiden at Saratoga (8-4-12).

Monday morning, Darley Stable’s impressive homebred Fortify continued preparations for the Grade 2, $300,000 Three Chimneys Hopeful on closing day, Monday, September 3.

 

The 2-year-old Distorted Humor colt breezed four furlongs in 51.17 on the Saratoga main track, his first workout since breaking his maiden on debut by 5 ½ lengths August 4 at the Spa.

 

“He went a little slow, but he’s fit,” said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. “We would have liked him to go in 49. He went in 51, but he worked well. It was just a rider error, but it’s fine. He’s doing well. All systems are ‘go’ for the Hopeful. We might work him back in company. He was by himself and just went through the motions.”

 

In other Three Chimney Hopeful news, trainer Todd Pletcher indicated that stakes winner Shanghai Bobby and maiden winner Palace Malice are scheduled to breeze on Tuesday. Both colts are among those Pletcher is pointing toward the race.
