Out of Bounds, a 10-1 longshot that upset 1-2 favorite Secret Circle
in Saturday’s Sham
Stakes, likely will make his next start on the Triple Crown trail in the
Grade II, $300,000 San Felipe Stakes at 1 1/16 miles on March 10.
“He’ll probably come back in the San Felipe,” trainer Eoin Harty
said Sunday morning. “He came out of the race well and everything looks
good right now.”
Out of Bounds, an over-sized colt by Discreet Cat who is out of
2007 Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Unbridled Elaine and is owned by
Darley Stable, rallied from fourth at the half-mile marker in the Sham
field of five to wear down previously unbeaten Breeders’ Cup Juvenile
Sprint winner Secret Circle by a half-length under Garrett Gomez, who
was winning his sixth stakes race of the meet, the last four in a row.
Bob Baffert said Secret Circle “looks good” Sunday morning but
mentioned no race for the colt’s
next start. “They ran pretty fast,” said the Hall of Fame trainer who
turns 59 on Jan. 13. “He didn’t accomplish a lot but he ran good. He
just got beat.
“He did all the dirty work (prompting the pace in second place
and then leading until deep stretch in the one mile Sham). I’m not
ruling out two turns for his next race, but we’ll see how much this
takes out of him.”
