Past the Wire takes a look ahead at who might be going where in the future months leading up to the Breeders’ Cup. Of course nothing is official, and this is horse racing so everything is subject to change in a flash. These are some of projections based on what we hear, what we know, and what we suspect.
Code Of Honor is likely passing the Belmont and pointing to the Jim Dandy and Travers at Saratoga. He broke his maiden up there as a two-year old so Shug McGaughey knows he likes that track.
Maximum Security is looking at the Haskell at Monmouth. His connections have confirmed he will pass the Belmont but may prep for the Haskell in the Pegasus also at Monmouth. If he wins the Haskell, the Travers and Pennsylvania Derby would be the next logical targets.
War of Will is heading to the Belmont. Tacitus will probably be meeting him there.
Thunder Snow is looking at a trip to the US for the Metropolitan Mile on the Belmont Stakes undercard. The Met Mile is shaping to be one of “the” races of the year and very well may outshine the Belmont Stakes. Coal Front, Firenze Fire and possibly McKinzie are all also looking at the Met. Promises Fulfilled is likely to show up in there as well. I would have to think the thought of the Met Mile will at least enter the mind of Steve Asmussen for Mitole, his fast as polished steel sprinter.
Gift Box is looking at the Gold Cup at Santa Anita. Core Beliefs, Lone Sailor, and Vino Rosso are all probably heading that way as well.
Catholic Boy is heading to the Suburban at Belmont which means he is heading back to the dirt.
