In Trouble Likely for Wood Memorial

In Trouble, making his 3-year-old debut and his first start around two turns, ran valiantly to finish third in the Gotham. After leading the field through splits of 23.85 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 48.30 for the half, the Tiz Wonderful colt was taken on by both Samraat and Uncle Sigh entering the stretch, but dug in along the rail and was beaten by only a half-length for the win.

 

Owned by Team D and trained by Tony Dutrow, the bay colt was undefeated entering the race - having won both of his juvenile outings - including a win in the Grade 2 Futurity at Belmont Park. The Gotham also marked his first race beyond six furlongs.

 

His next start, said Dutrow, likely will be in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial.

 

"You can't be too disappointed when they run like that," said Dutrow. "Right now my mind is on the Wood Memorial. He still has questions to answer and I'm going to look at [the Wood]."
