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
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.”
