Among other Whitney starters, Lemon Drop Kid breezed five furlongs on the main track at Saratoga Saturday morning. The 4-year-old son of Kingmambo trained by Scotty Schulhofer completed the drill in 1:01 under jockey Edgar Prado. Also expected to run in the Whitney are Behrens, Running Stag, Cat Thief, and David.
Stronach Stable's Golden Missile breezed five furlongs in 1:04 1/5 over a sloppy Oklahoma training track at Saratoga on Monday in preparation for Sunday's $750,000 Whitney Handicap (gr. I). The Pimlico Special (gr. I) winner trained by Joe Orseno got the first quarter-mile in :27 2/5 and was timed in :39 1/5 for three furlongs. He galloped out six furlongs in 1:18, getting the final eighth of a mile in :14. The clockers noted that Golden Missile was "stretching his legs" during the workout.
