Undefeated sprinter Lost in the Fog, now 8-for-8 racing in owner Harry Aleo's silks, galloped over the main Saratoga track Friday morning and is set for a Sunday workout with jockey Edgar Prado.
The brilliant 3-year-old has only been headed twice in his life and will try to remain perfect in the $250,000 King's Bishop (gr. I), going seven furlongs on Travers Day, Aug. 27.
Wood Memorial (gr. I) winner Bellamy Road is nominated to the King's Bishop and the Travers. Although trainer Greg Gilchrist certainly likes his position with Lost in the Fog, he would rather Bellamy Road run in the Travers.
"We're not looking for anybody to go prove something against Lost in the Fog," said Gilchrist. "We're certainly not stepping around anyone, but I'd like to get in as easy as we can get in."
Gilchrist will be on hand to watch Lost in the Fog's work Sunday morning before heading back to his base at Golden Gate Fields in California.
The trainer said he would travel back to Saratoga Wednesday and remain through the King's Bishop.
