Soldat Eyes Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf

Soldat, second in Sunday’s Grade 3 Pilgrim, will depart Belmont Park four days before he runs in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf, said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

 

Owned by Harvey A. Clarke and W. Craig Robertson, III, Soldat became the first stakes winner for his freshman sire War Front when he won the Grade 3 With Anticipation at Saratoga on October 3. War Front, a son of Danzig, began his career by making two starts for McLaughlin before he was transferred to the barn of Hall of Famer Allen Jerkens, for whom he won the 2006 Grade 2 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap at six furlongs on the dirt.

 

“War Front was a really good looking colt and was a great mover,” said McLaughlin. “He was a beautiful horse. I think Soldat is a nice looking horse, but he’s not as robust. They both have great minds and do everything right.”

 

McLaughlin added that he has several interesting options in mind for Mrs. Fitriani Hay’s Redding Colliery, winner of the Grade 2 Hawthorne Gold Cup last Saturday.

 

“The [Grade 1 Hill ‘n’ Dale Cigar Mile Handicap at Aqueduct November 27] is a possibility, but we’d need to look over it,” said McLaughlin. “He’s been invited to Japan for the dirt race [Japan Cup Dirt, Group 1, Hanshin Racecourse, December 5]. We’ll take it a look at it.”

 

Before McLaughlin decides where Redding Colliery will make his next start, the 4-year-old must first get back to Belmont.

 

“He’s still in Chicago and he’ll leave on Monday,” the conditioner said. “My staff over there said he came out of the race well.”
