Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey remained well-satisfied with the return of
Boisterous to the winner’s
circle following Saturday’s Grade 3 Knickerbocker but is unsure of his
plans for the 4-year-old Distorted Humor colt.
“He came back well; I was pleased with his race,” said
McGaughey of Boisterous, who is 3-0-1 from five 2011 starts for Brushwood
Stable. “But I have no idea what I want to do next with him.”
McGaughey said that while he will nominate Boisterous to the Grade 2
Red Smith at Aqueduct Racetrack on November 5, he does have a few reservations.
“It is a little quick back, just three weeks,” said
McGaughey. “Plus, Johnny [Velazquez] knows him so well, and he is going
to be out of town for the Breeders’ Cup. But I would sure like to run him
in another race this year.”
