It's Tricky Will Train for Breeders' Cup at Belmont Park

It's Tricky wins 2012 Ogden Phipps

Grade 1 Beldame runner-up It’s Tricky will remain at Belmont instead of returning to the Greentree training center next to Saratoga Race Course to train for the Breeders’ Cup as previously planned, said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

“After she ran, I just thought about, and she does well from here,” said McLaughlin of It’s Tricky, who had been based upstate since June. “So we decided to leave her here from now, and see how she trains.”

A decision on whether the 4-year-old filly will run in the 1 1/8-mile Ladies’ Classic, in which she finished second to Royal Delta last year, or the seven-furlong Filly & Mare Sprint has yet to be made, said McLaughlin.

“[Godolphin racing manager] Simon Crisford will help us decide,” said McLaughlin. “We’ll pre-enter both. Obviously, one is tough-tough, and the other is tough as well. But we’ll look at both of them. We’ll talk to Simon, he’s the boss when it comes to placing them.”

The multiple Grade 1-winning filly, 8-4-1 from 14 career starts, has one victory in three starts at the Ladies’ Classic distance, with one third and one fourth-place finish. She is 2-for-2 sprinting, including her six-furlong maiden victory and the Grade 2 Distaff Handicap this spring at Aqueduct Racetrack.

Maybe they are wating to see if Royal Delta is going to run in the Ladie's Classic...if she does, Tricky may as well try something else because she is not going to beat her
