Trainer Linda Rice said Saratoga favorite Voodoo Song has come out of the Grade 3 Forbidden Apple in good order after finishing a subpar eighth and would next point for the $100,000 Fasig-Tipton Lure on Saturday, August 3.

"He came out of his race well," said Rice. "He's been tucked up and I'm really happy with him."

Most notably known for his four wins in four starts at the Spa in 2017, the 5-year-old son of English Channel for owner Barry Schwartz also flourished at Saratoga last year, capturing the Grade 1 Fourstardave.

"I discussed with Barry and he agrees this horse flourishes with a little bit more frequency," said Rice.

Holiday Disguise for Lady Sheila Stable, who won the Dancin Renee last out on June 15 at Belmont Park, will next point for the $100,000 Union Avenue on Thursday, August 15. Her half-sister Midnight Disguise, who finished third in the Dancin Renee for owners Dr. William B. Taylor & Dr. Joan M. Taylor, will be given a break and return to racing in the fall.

Rice reported graded-stakes winner
 Nicodemus,who was vanned off after taking a bad step in the Grade 2 John A. Nerud on July 6 at Belmont, was sent for a full scope following the race and would receive some time off.  

 Newly Minted,who is entered in the New York Oaks on Saturday at Finger Lakes, would also be kept in consideration for the $200,000 Fleet Indian on August 23, and 6-year-old New York-bred Vincento for owner Vince Scuderi would point for the $100,000 Evan Shipman for New York-breds on August 7 after winning back-to-back allowance races at Belmont on June 20 and Opening Day at Saratoga on July 11.
