LeBernardin Could Be Headed To The Haskell

Posted Saturday, Jul 14, 2012


Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said on Saturday morning that Pegasus Stakes winner LeBernardin might make his next start in the Grade 1 $1 million Haskell Invitational and that there is also the possibility that Count Fleet and Withers Stakes winner Alpha, who finished 12th in the Kentucky Derby, could run instead.

            Both colts are among the 29 three-year-olds invited for 45th renewal of the Haskell on Sunday, July 29. The event will be contested at 1 1/8 mile on Monmouth’s main track.

            “I’m trying to split them up,” said McLaughlin when reached by phone at Belmont Park. “Both of them are doing great and there is a chance one will run. Le Bernardin really likes the track at Monmouth and his last race there was impressive.”

            Darley Stable’s LeBernardin captured the Grade 3 $100,000 Pegasus Stakes here last time out as he won the final prep race for the Haskell by a neck with Mike Luzzi in the irons. Unraced as a 2-year-old, the Kentucky-bred son of Bernardini has won three of his five starts this year.

            “He and Alpha both worked great this morning at Belmont and both of them are doing great right now,” McLaughlin said.

            Alpha blazed five furlongs in 58.88 for the fastest breeze of 23 horses at the distance and Le Bernardin traveled four furlongs in 49.37.
