Trappe Shot Breezes for Vanderbilt

Trappe Shot wins 2011 True North - top story

Trappe Shot, one of the top sprinters in the country, had his first breeze Thursday since coming up a nose short to Sean Avery in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt on August 7.

 

The Mill House-owned 4-year-old son of Tapit worked an easy half-mile on the main track in 49.73 seconds for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin.

 

“We’re most likely going to the [Grade 1] Vosburgh on October 2,” McLaughlin said of the prestigious $350,000 six-furlong sprint at Belmont Park. “It was his first work since he ran. With this hurricane coming, I didn’t know what to do. We’ll get him back to working Saturdays.”

 

McLaughlin mentioned that Trappe Shot remains nominated for the Grade 1, $250,000 Forego on September 3 at Saratoga, calling the race “a possibility,” but the Vosburgh remains his most probable next start.
