Hymn Book Getting Ready For Whitney

Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey reported Saturday that Grade 1 Whitney Invitational Handicap hopeful Hymn Book is likely to turn in his final serious work for the race on Sunday morning at Saratoga Race Course.

 

“He’ll probably go out after the first break at Oklahoma,” McGaughey said.

 

Also tentatively slated to work Sunday are Rule and Caixa Eletronica, both from the barn of trainer Todd Pletcher.

 

“It’s a little bit of a question mark,” Pletcher said. “Probably after the break on the main track, assuming that I like the surface, but subject to change.”

 

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott is planning to send Flat Out and Ron the Greek out after the first break on the Oklahoma training track. Mott also has To Honor and Serve under consideration for the 1 1/8-mile race.

 

“I’m playing it close to the vest,” said Mott, who will celebrate his 59th birthday tomorrow with four starters.

 

Mott traditionally saddles at least one winner at the Spa when his birthday falls on a live racing day. A $2 win bet placed on each of Mott’s starters on July 29 since 2006 would have yielded a profit of $33.70.
