It's Tricky turned in her first work following her victory in the TVG Coaching Club American Oaks (gr. I), breezing four furlongs in :49 1/5 Aug. 6 at Saratoga.
The moved pleased trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, who confirmed the Godolphin Racing representative remains on course for a start in the TVG Alabama (gr. I) on Aug. 20.
“It’s Tricky went great,” said McLaughlin. “She worked very well and we’re pleased. She’ll work next Saturday-ish, depending on the weather.”
Also on the worktab for McLaughlin was Rattlesnake Bridge, who is training up to the Travers (gr. I) on Aug. 27 off a triumph in the Long Branch at Monmouth Park on July 9. Owned by Mill House, Rattlesnake Bridge was clocked in 1:02 4/5 for five furlongs.
“He continues to train well, and he’ll have a couple more works the next few Saturdays,” said McLaughlin. “We’re happy to have the time. It’s hard to run every three or four weeks these days, so it’s nice to be able to have a little time.”
