Trinniberg Breezes For King's Bishop

With his eye on the Grade 1, $500,000 Foxwoods King’s Bishop on August 25, three-time graded stakes winner Trinniberg had his first breeze at Saratoga Race Course on Friday, traveling four furlongs on the Oklahoma training track in 49.41 seconds with jockey Willie Martinez aboard.

 

“His regular rider was aboard him, and we told him we didn’t want anything faster than 49,” said owner Shivananda Parbhoo. “He went in 49.41, which is perfect. [Martinez] didn’t move a muscle. He came back happy and went straight to his feed.”

 

Parbhoo said Trinniberg, second to Fort Loudon in the Grade 3 Carry Back on July 7 at Calder, has been at Saratoga for 20 days and will breeze the next two Saturdays.

 

“They’ll have to try to catch him [in the Foxwood’s King’s Bishop],” said Parbhoo, whose father, Bisnath Parboo, trains the Teuflesberg colt.

 

The Foxwoods King’s Bishop will be Trinniberg’s second race at Saratoga, having finished second by three-quarters of a length to Currency Swap at 68-1 in the Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful last September. Trinniberg turned the tables on Currency Swap two starts back in the Grade 2 Woody Stephens presented by VisitNassauCounty.com, with Currency Swap coming back to win the Grade 2 Amsterdam on Saturday.

 

Six of the 10 starters in last year’s Three Chimneys Hopeful have gone on to win at least one stakes, topped by sixth-place finisher I’ll Have Another, who captured this year’s Grade 1 Kentucky Derby and Grade 1 Preakness.

 

“[Trinnberg] ran a big race in the Hopeful, and half of the field has come back to do big things,” said Parbhoo.

 

The Foxwoods King’s Bishop for 3-year-olds will be contested over the Three Chimneys Hopeful’s seven-furlong distance.
