The Lumber Guy Will Face Older in Vosburgh

The Lumber Guy is set for the Vosburgh, which will be his first start in 4 ½ months and first foray against his elders.

 

After winning the Grade 2 Jerome in April at Aqueduct Racetrack, The Lumber Guy faded to sixth in Belmont’s Grade 2 Peter Pan in May, prompting trainer Michael Hushion and owner Barry Schwartz to freshen the 3-year-old.

 

The Lumber Guy, who worked five furlongs in 58.40, handily, on Thursday, will be cutting back from 1 1/8 miles to six furlongs in the Vosburgh.

 

“My opinion is that he fits [in the Vosburgh],” said Hushion. “I don’t know how it will set up, but I think he’ll be close to the pace. I don’t know if he’ll be the pace or not. He’s very sharp right now. We’ll see how fast and how far he can run. They’re nice horses, but I don’t know if the Breeders’ Cup winner is in [the Vosburgh].”

 

Hall of Famer John Velazquez will ride The Lumber Guy, Hushion added.
