Shackleford Decision Due Monday

Shackleford top story

A decision on whether multiple Grade 1 winner Shackleford will run in Saturday’s Cigar Mile Handicap will be made tomorrow, trainer Dale Romans said this morning from Kentucky.

 

“There are a lot of factors going into the decision,” said Romans, who also is considering the Grade 1 Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs for the 2011 Preakness and 2012 Metropolitan Handicap winner. “He likes it at Aqueduct, and he likes it at Churchill Downs.  There’s a plane to New York on Tuesday, so we’ll make a decision by Monday.”

 

On Saturday, Shackleford went a half-mile in 47.40 on the main track at Churchill Downs with exercise rider Tammy Fox aboard. The breeze – his first since a seventh-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on November 3 – was the second-fastest of 57 at the distance.

 

“He worked really well and seemed to come out of it fine this morning,” said Romans.

 

Owned by Mike Lauffer, Bill Cubbedge and the Phillips Racing Partnership, Shackleford has won more than $2.8 million with a record of 5-5-1 from 19 career starts. In his only appearance at Aqueduct, he was third after a wide trip in the Grade 1 Carter Handicap in April.
