Plans Foggy for Star Colt

(from Saratoga notes)
Trainer Greg Gilchrist said Sunday that he's not sure where the Lost in the Fog, the undefeated winner of the King's Bishop (gr. I), will race next.

"We'll get him back home and make sure everything is all right," Gilchrist said. "I'd say the Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I) is a good possibility."

The TVG Breeders' Cup Sprint is Oct. 29 at Belmont Park. It's possible that the 3-year-old Lost in the Fog, who has won nine races in a row – including seven victories in 2005 – could train for two months before running again.

Gilchrist said Lost in the Fog is a little fatigued after his 4 3/4-length win in the King's Bishop.

"He came back fine, but he's a little tired," Gilchrist said. "We're glad everything worked out good. We got our grade I win with him."

Lost in the Fog, who has won stakes at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, Saratoga, and three other tracks this year, will leave for Northern California on Tuesday morning. Gilchrist says he and owner Harry Aleo will discuss the colt's next start.

Lost in the Fog is not Breeders' Cup eligible, meaning he will have to be supplemented to the $1 million Sprint for $90,000.

Even though he has made three separate trips to New York this season, Gilchrist says it is unlikely Lost in the Fog would run there again prior to the Breeders' Cup.

"I know the Vosburgh is at Belmont, but to ship to New York and then ship back to California and then come back for the Breeders' Cup would be a lot to ask," he said.
