Hamazing Destiny Targets Vanderbilt

Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas confirmed his rugged sprinter Hamazing Destiny will start next in the Grade 1 Vanderbilt on August 5.

 

The 6-year-old son of Salt Lake has competed in 18 stakes races, 13 of them graded, among 27 starts. With a record of 5-6-4 and earnings of $725,375, he broke through for his first graded stakes score on May 19 in the Grade 3 Maryland Sprint Handicap on Preakness Day at Pimlico.

 

In his most recent start, Hamazing Destiny finished a close-up fourth behind winner Caixa Eletronica in the Grade 2 True North Handicap on June 9 at Belmont Park, earning a 97 Beyer Speed Figure over a track Lukas said he didn’t like.

 

“That last race, he didn’t run well at Belmont,” Lukas said. “I expect him to run well here. A Grade 1 is always tough. He travels well, he runs well everywhere. He’ll once in a while get a surface he doesn’t care for, but most times he’s pretty good.”

 

The Vanderbilt will be Hamazing Destiny’s seventh start at Saratoga since he began his career in 2009. Last year, he ran three times at the Spa, finishing second to Jackson Bend in the James Marvin, then finishing sixth in the Vanderbilt and fourth in the Grade 1 Forego.
