Interpatation Eyes Manhattan

Turf marathoner Interpatation, winner of last year’s Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic over soft ground, breezed five furlongs over the Belmont main track in 1:01.40 on Sunday morning.

 

The workout was the second drill for the 8-year-old gelding since an eighth-place finish in the Grade 3 Fort Marcy over 1 1/16th miles on May 1.

 

“He came out of the [Fort Marcy] well,” said trainer Bobby Barbara. “It was just to give him something to do. A mile and a sixteenth isn’t his game anymore. He doesn’t have the kick for distances like that.”

 

The gelded son of Langfuhr will make his next start in the Grade 1 Manhattan on Belmont Stakes Day, Saturday, June 5.

 

“We’ll go to the Manhattan and hope the skies open up,” said Barbara. “We never miss any dances!”

 

Owned by Elliot Mavorah, Interpatation has a record of 6-4-11 from 56 career starts and has earned over $1.15 million.
