George and Lori Hall’s Pants
on Fire, who finished ninth as the second choice (8-1) in the May 7 Kentucky
Derby, is ready to resume training, Kelly Breen said Friday, and may come back
to the track as soon as Saturday.
The 3-year-old colt by Jump
Start, who won the Louisiana Derby (G2) to punch his ticket for Louisville, bled during
the running of the Kentucky Derby, and was never able to show his best form.
Breen said Pants on Fire now
will be pointed for the $175,000 Long Branch Stakes on July 9 as his prep for
the $1 million Haskell Invitational (G1) on Sunday, July 31.
