Rattlesnake Bridge Likely to Pre-Enter Classic

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin
After weeks of consideration, the connections of Rattlesnake Bridge are "likely" to pre-enter the 3-year-old in the Breeders' Cup Classic, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Sunday.

On Saturday, Rattlesnake Bridge breezed four furlongs in 48.43 seconds, .01 seconds faster than Trappe Shot. Both colts are owned by Mill House, with Trappe Shot, a 4-year-old, being pointed toward a start in either the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile or Breeders' Cup Sprint.

"Rattlesnake and Trappe Shot worked well and looked good today," said McLaughlin.

Alpha, aiming for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, and Miss Netta, probable for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, were also on Saturday's worktab, with Alpha finishing .01 seconds ahead of his stablemate in 49.27.

The two juveniles have different owners, with Alpha racing under the Godolphin Racing banner and Miss Netta competing for Cheyenne Stables.

"We're not trying to beat one another," said McLaughlin of the drill in company. "It's just for the competitiveness and for riders so they don't make an error and go 52 or 46. If they work together, it's two heads talking to one another, 'Whoa, slow down!' or 'Pick it up!' They both had to work a half, and it worked out."

McLaughlin added that Ladies' Classic contender It's Tricky is likely to workout on Wednesday.
