Trappe Shot Continues Vosburgh Preparations

Trappe Shot wins 2011 True North - top story
Trappe Shot continued preparations for his engagement in the October 1 Grade 1 Vosburgh Invitational with a four-furlong breeze at Belmont on Saturday, working in company with stablemate Rattlesnake Bridge. The tandem was clocked in 49.90 seconds.

Both colts are owned by Nicholas Brady's Mill House and are sons of Tapit. Trappe Shot, a 4-year-old, seeks his first Grade 1 victory, having won the Grade 2 True North Presented by Emirates Airline in June and finished second by a nose in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap in August.

"They weren't super fast, but I felt like when we worked after the break the track might have been a little bit dull," McLaughlin said on Sunday. "Anyway, we're happy. The important horses worked well and came back in good shape."

Rattlesnake Bridge, runner-up in the Grade 1 Travers, is working toward a start in the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby on September 24 at Parx Racing. Also on the worktab on Saturday was Godolphin Racing's Grade 1 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks heroine It's Tricky, who will make her next start in the Grade 2 Cotillion on October 1 at Parx.

McLaughlin added that Darley Stable's Alpha, a 2-year-old who debuted a six-length winner at Saratoga Race Course on September 3, will likely return to the worktab next Saturday as he aims for a start in the Grade 1 Champagne on October 8 at Belmont.

"He's smallish-framed, so he doesn't need to work every week," said McLaughlin. "We'll work him on the 21st for the 8th, but we'll also watch the weather. We might work him Thursday or Friday."
