Rail Trip on target for Gold Cup

Rail Trip continued his preparations for the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on October 2 with a brisk six-furlong breeze on the Saratoga main track Saturday morning.

 

Working in company with Eagle Strike, Rail Trip covered the distance in 1:11.25, 1.88 seconds faster than his stablemate.

 

“I wanted to get what we got, and that’s a good work,” said Rick Dutrow, who trains Rail Trip for Jay Em Ess Stable.

 

The Jockey Club Gold Cup will be Rail Trip’s first start outside California, where he won eight of 12 starts, including the 2009 Grade 1 Hollywood Gold Cup, for trainer Ron Ellis.

 

Also on the worktab for Dutrow was Acting Happy, who worked four furlongs in 48.90 in company with European import Cloneylass.
