Nashua Next for Fort Hughes

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Darley Stable’s impressive maiden winner Fort Hughes will likely make his next start in the Grade 2, $150,000 Nashua on November 6 at Aqueduct.

 

A 5 ½-length debut winner at Belmont Park on October 10 going 5 ½ furlongs, Fort Hughes is a son of top sprinter Henny Hughes, whom McLaughlin also trained.  

 

“We worry a little about the distance, jumping up to a mile, but he’s training very well, so we figure we’ll give it a try and see how it goes,” McLaughlin said. “He looks a lot like [Henny Hughes], powerfully built, and we worry about the distance with him because of that, but right now maybe we can get away with it.”
