Pegasus Field Coming Together

Some of the 3-year-olds looking for a bid to the $1 million Haskell Invitational (G1) on July 31 will swing into action at Monmouth on Saturday, June 18, in the $200,000 Pegasus Stakes (G3) at a mile and a sixteenth.

 

The Monmouth-based contingent is expected to be led by George and Lori Hall’s Pants on Fire, who finished ninth as one of the favorites in the Kentucky Derby. The Jump Start colt, trained by Kelly Breen, won the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby before the Run for the Roses.

 

Pants on Fire bled in the Derby, Breen said, but the colt has been training sharply at Monmouth and will use the Pegasus as his Haskell prep.

 

Rivals in the Pegasus are expected to include the Todd Pletcher-trained Turbo Compressor, who made a big impression at Monmouth on opening day, May 14, when he won a first-level allowance event by 13 ½ lengths.

 

Trainer Justin Salusto has nominated both Clarke Lane and Crossed the Line, and will run one of the colts. Clarke Lane, who raced in England as a 2-year-old, was third in the Alydar Stakes at Hollywood Park last month. Crossed the Line raced twice at Monmouth last year, and just missed breaking his maiden by a nose last Nov. 13.
