One of Horse Racing’s major summer events, the 2014 Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, is beginning to take shape and it could include the enormously talented Untapable, a filly. While owner Ron Winchell and trainer Steve Asmussen think about what they want to due with their fleet Tapit filly, either run her vs. the boys July 27 in the Grade 1 Haskell or in the Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga exactly one week later, Monmouth Park stakes coordinator Dan Dufford said he had “six or seven probables” for the nine furlong Grade: 1 including:   **Bayern, who would come from California and is trained by Bob Baffert, was last seen winning the Woody Stephens Stakes by 7 1/2 lengths on June 7 after speeding thru seven furlongs in 1:20.3 and earning a 107 Beyer Speed Figure in the process. He has had two works since that race, including five furlongs in 59.4 on the 4th of July.   ** Albano, who was second in both the Lecomte Stakes and the Risen Star Stakes then finished fifth (but moved up to fourth via disqualification) in the $1 million Louisiana Derby this past spring, was last seen cruising to an easy win (by 6 ½ lengths) June 15 in the Grade 3 Pegasus Stakes at Monmouth while getting 8 ½ furlongs in 1:44 flat. After working five furlongs last Monday at Delaware Park, trainer Larry Jones said: “We’re planning on the Haskell; we know he likes the track.”   ** Wildcat Red, who won the 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes and was second Florida Derby, also appears ready based off his last performance. The Floridian colt by D’Wildcat annihilated the field in his last race (June 28 in the $90,000 Quality Road Stakes at Gulfstream Park) while winning by 10 ¼ lengths getting 8 ½ furlongs in 1:42.3   ** Social Inclusion, who is overflowing with talent but has been mishandled in 2014, also appears to be ready to run. The gorgeous son of Pioneerof the Nile worked a :47.2 half, and galloped out five furlongs in 1:01 3/5 this past Thursday at Gulfstream Park “The Haskell isn’t going to be an easy race,” owner Ron Sanchez said. “It looks like there’s going to be a lot of speed in there with Wildcat Red running. Hopefully, our horse will finally win a graded race.”   **** Irish You Well and Just Call Kenny, who ran 1-2 respectively in the Long Branch Stakes over this very (Monmouth) track on July 5, are both considered probable at this point (third-place finisher Encryption, who was less than three lengths behind Just Call Kenny, is also a possibility, but his connection remain on the fence for now).  Irish You Well earned a 98 Beyer for his half length win over Just Call Kenny in the 1 1/16-mile Long Branch that was run in 1:42.2 and Just Call Kenny was making his first start since winning the Spectacular Bid Stakes at Gulfstream Park in January.  Thanks for Reading www.knightsoftheroundstable.com The post Horse Racing: The 2014 Haskell Invitational…..A Look Ahead appeared first on isportsweb.
