Wildcat Red Pointing to King's Bishop

Multiple graded stakes winner Wildcat Red is being pointed to the Grade 1, $500,000 Ketel One King's Bishop on August 23, trainer Jose Garoffalo said Thursday morning.


 

Third in Sunday's Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, the 3-year-old son of Grade 1-winning sprinter D'wildcat will leave New Jersey for Saratoga around August 10, the trainer said.


 

The seven-furlong King's Bishop is one of three supporting graded stakes for the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers, run at 1 ¼ miles. Garoffalo, who returned to his Gulfstream Park base on Tuesday, said he would also keep an eye on how the Travers develops.


 

"I'm going to nominate to both races, but I'm leaning toward the King's Bishop," said Garoffalo. "I want to look and see what horses are going to the race. It looks like it's going to be a very tough group of horses, and the Travers is going to be even tougher. But he's doing good so we are going to head up there and see. He's already run seven-eighths this year and he won easy, so I think that'll be a good race for him."


 

Wildcat Red won the seven-furlong Grade 3 Hutcheson at Gulfstream by 4 ¾ lengths on February 1, then captured the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth at 1 1/16 miles three weeks later and was second by a neck to Constitution in the Grade 1, 1 1/8-mile Florida Derby on March 30.


 

"We'll get him up there and work him the week before the race," Garoffalo said. "He's very good. I gave him some days off after the Haskell, and we'll bring him back to the track on Friday or Saturday. He's doing great."
