J J's Lucky Train Makes Anderson Proud

J J’s Lucky Train, the late-running victor of yesterday’s Grade 3 Bay Shore, has the Grade 2 Woody Stephens on the Belmont Stakes undercard on June 11 as a possible long-range objective, trainer Bill Anderson revealed this morning.


“He cleaned up after the trip back to Philadelphia yesterday,” said Anderson, who trains the 3-year-old for Fresh Start Stable. “He was on his toes this morning and we had to put a lip chain on him to walk him. We’re thinking about the Woody Stephens, but that’s a while from now. We’ll try to find something between that race and the Bay Shore. We’re trying to map out a plan.”


Anderson, who has trained horses since 1980 and has competed primarily in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in recent years, ranked J J’s Lucky Train as the best horse he has trained.


“He’s the best, and he showed it yesterday,” said Anderson. “He has matured a lot.”
