Pants On Fire Returns to Monmouth Park

Pants on Fire wins the Louisiana Derby 2011
Pants on Fire, who last raced at Monmouth when he finished fifth in the 2011 Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, breezed five furlongs over a fast track in 1:00.80 on May 19 in preparation for the $75,000 Skip Away Stakes on May 26.
 
“It was a really good work and he is doing extremely well right now,” said trainer Kelly Breen. “He’s doing super.  I’d like to get him back to his winning ways.”
 
The 4-year-old colt, who won the Louisiana Derby before finishing 9th in the 2011 Kentucky Derby with Rosie Napravnik in the irons, captured an optional claiming allowance on March 12 at Gulfstream this year with Paco Lopez aboard. Napravnik was back aboard for the Grade 2 New Orleans Handicap and the Grade 2 Charlestown Classic in April, but the colt didn’t fire and ended up fifth and sixth, respectively.
 
Breen has named Lopez to ride the son of Jump Start in Saturday’s Skip Away, a mile and a sixteenth test for 3-year-olds an up.
