Trappe Shot Set for Vosburgh

With an eye on the sky, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin elected to have Mill House’s Trappe Shot breeze one day early, with the 4-year-old posting a 49.45 four-furlong breeze Friday on the training track.

 

“We called an audible with the weather,” said McLaughlin. “He worked well, and we’re ready for the Vosburgh.”

 

Trappe Shot, winner of the Grade 2 True North Handicap Presented by Emirates Airline in June, will attempt to pick up his first Grade 1 win in the October 1 Vosburgh Invitational, having finished second by a nose to Sean Avery in the Grade 1 Alfred Vanderbilt Handicap on August 7 at Saratoga Race Course.

 

Alpha, who breezed four furlongs in 49.53 on the training track Wednesday, will carry the colors of Godolphin Racing in the Grade 1 Champagne on October 8, McLaughlin revealed. In Alpha’s lone previous effort, a six-length win on September 3 at Saratoga, the juvenile raced for Darley Stable.

 

“He’ll work one more time for the Champagne,” said McLaughlin. “He’s going to change jerseys. He’ll have a blue jersey on him. He’ll run under my name, but a different jersey. He’ll go from maroon to blue.”

 

McLaughlin said he doesn’t know Godolphin’s plans for Alpha beyond the Champagne.

 

“We’ll take it one race at a time,” said McLaughlin. “If he graduates from McLaughlin High School and goes on to college, we’ll be proud and hopeful.”
