McLaughlin: No Excuses for Trappe Shot

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin was making no excuses for Trappe Shot the morning after his ninth-place finish as the 7-2 favorite in yesterday’s Travers.

 

“He got knocked a little coming out of the gate, but he had a good trip and was able to save ground,” said McLaughlin. “He just didn’t fire.”

 

McLaughlin said Trappe Shot horse exited the race in good shape, but hasn’t thought about where the Mill House colorbearer will race next.

 

“We’ll regroup now and he’ll tell us where he’ll go next,” he said.

 

Partially offsetting Trappe Shot’s disappointing effort was Bank Merger’s second-place finish at 9-1 in the Grade 1 King’s Bishop, the third start of the Darley Stable representative’s career.

 

“Bank Merger was a nice result,” said McLaughlin. “It was a late decision to enter the race, and he finished second to a nice horse.”
