McLaughlin Weighs Options for Trappe Shot

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin

Trappe Shot, second to Lookin At Lucky in the Grade 1 Haskell, will make his next start at Saratoga Race Course on August 28, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Wednesday.

 

“We do know, if everything goes well, that he will run on August 28,” said the trainer. “What we don’t know yet is what race he will run in.”

 

The two choices for the 3-year-old Tapit colt are the 141st running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers at 1 ¼ miles or the Grade 1, $250,000 King’s Bishop at seven furlongs.

 

“I was very happy with his race against Lookin At Lucky, who was the champion 2-year-old colt and probably will be the champion 3-year-old colt,” said McLaughlin. “Now we have a choice between facing Discreetly Mine in the King’s Bishop, or running 1 ¼ miles.

 

“It’s a jump ball – both are Grade 1 races and very important races as a stallion. Fortunately we are in a position to be able to make that kind of choice, and we don’t have to make it right away.”
