Infrattini Set to Return in Mineshaft 'Cap

Infrattini 1
Infrattini, the Z Thoroughbreds color bearer who bested Brereton Jones’s Grade II Peter Pan winner Mark Valeski by three-quarters of a length in the $100,000 Louisiana Handicap Jan. 19 at the local oval, is now set to return in the Grade III Mineshaft Handicap on Louisiana Derby Preview Day Presented by Lamarque Ford Feb. 23, trainer Paul McGee confirmed Friday.

 

Shortly after Infrattini’s win in the Louisiana Handicap, McGee had indicated he was inclined to skip the Mineshaft and run Infrattini next in the Grade II New Orleans Handicap on Louisiana Derby Day March 30.

 

“I said at that time that I was leaning toward skipping the Mineshaft,” said McGee Friday morning, “but I never did rule it out. Now we’re back in it.”

 

Infrattini breezed five furlongs last Saturday in 1:01.20 and will breeze again this Saturday, McGee indicated. 

 

Miguel Mena will breeze him when he goes again tomorrow,” McGee said.
