Justin Phillip Breezes for Vosburgh

The Steve Asmussen barn, which sent out Dust and Diamonds to score in Saturday’s Grade 2 Gallant Bloom Handicap, will attempt to land another Belmont graded sprint stakes next week with Zayat Stables’ Justin Phillip in the Grade 1, $400,000 Vosburgh Invitational on September 29.

 

On Sunday, Justin Phillip breezed four furlongs at Belmont in 49.96 as he prepares for his first start since finishing second by a neck in the Grade 1 Vanderbilt on August 5. In addition, he was third, beaten 1 ¾ lengths, in the Mr. Prospector in July at Monmouth Park and runner-up by three-quarters of a length in the Grade 2 True North Handicap in June at Belmont.

 

“He’s been performing right there and has been getting beat right on the jump, not quite getting there,” said Toby Sheets, Asmussen’s Belmont-based assistant. “We just need luck to go our way a little bit. [Saturday] would be an awesome day for that.”

 

Sheets said there are no immediate plans for Padua Stables homebred Dust and Diamonds following her 1 ¼-length victory in the Gallant Bloom.
