Kent Next Objective for Breathless Storm

Resorts Casino Hotel Haskell Day was a long one for Kiaran McLaughlin’s assistant trainer Andrew St. Lawrence.


Nearly six hours after saddling Cornerstone to a last-to-first win in Sunday’s third race, St. Lawrence sent out Mata Keranjang to capture the Haskell Day finale.  In between, the McLaughlin-trained Breathless Storm captured the Jersey Derby.


“It was a pretty fun day,” St. Lawrence said.  “Now we have to figure out where all this horses go from here.”


For now, the next major objective for Breathless Storm is the $250,000 Kent Stakes (G3) at Delaware Park on Sept. 24.


“He’s a pretty neat horse,” St. Lawrence said.  “He seems to have come out of the race better than he went into it.”


St. Lawrence says his horse’s position in the race surprised him a little bit, though.


“He was more forwardly-placed than he had been in his races,” St. Lawrence said.  “But if you watch the race and you look at him, he had his ears pricked the entire time.  He was relaxed and just galloping along.  And if you look at the times of the race, he ran each fraction quicker than the one before.”


Mata Keranjang, who captured Sunday’s Race 14 and is the last horse to beat Breathless Storm, appears headed to the $150,000 Cliffhanger (G3) at Monmouth Park on Sept. 4.


Darley Stable’s Cornerstone, who now owns a 3-1-0 record in four Monmouth Park starts after defeating Joey P. in Sunday’s third race, may take the jump up to stakes company next time out as well.

“He might be an interesting horse for the Icecapade on September 5,” St. Lawrence said.  “I didn’t think we were going to catch Joey P. Sunday but Channing [jockey Hill] really gave him a great, patient ride.  You feel bad a little bit beating Joey P. at Monmouth Park, especially on Haskell Day, but Cornerstone just seems to love this track.”
