Shotgun Gulch, winner of the Grade I Madison Stakes at Keeneland in April, is scheduled to be shipped here from Texas today for the $200,000 A Gleam Handicap for fillies and mares July 16.

 

The Grade II test at seven furlongs on Cushion Track is a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint November 4 at Churchill Downs.

 

Shotgun Gulch, a 4-year-old filly by Thunder Gulch, is owned, trained and bred by C.R. Trout. She has won 7 of 18 starts and earned $488,309. She worked five furlongs in a bullet 59.40 at Lone Star Park Saturday before her trip west.

 

Milady Handicap winner Ultra Blend, another A Gleam candidate, worked six furlongs in 1:13.20 Saturday for trainer Art Sherman.

 

ABRAMS TO UNDERGO SURGERY

 

Trainer Barry Abrams will undergo surgery for a recurrence of throat cancer at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena Tuesday.

 

“I had it six years ago, and it came back,” said Abrams Sunday. “It’s a small mass in a bad area, near the jugular vein and carotid artery. It’s a major surgery, about five hours.

 

“I should be in the hospital about a week,” said the 57-year-old Arcadia resident. “I’ll recuperate at home watching the races at Del Mar.”

 

Abrams said that assistant Richard Baltas will supervise his 32-horse stable while he recovers.

 

“I have no fear; let’s get it done already,” said Abrams.
