Limousine Liberal, the speedy three-year-old sprinter than finished second to Runhappy in the King’s Bishop Stakes (gr. I) on August 29th at Saratoga, is pointing toward a start in the October 31st Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I) at Keeneland.
Coming off of a runner-up effort in the September 19th Gallant Bob Stakes (gr. III) at Parx, Limousine Liberal breezed five furlongs in :59 3/5 at Keeneland on the morning of October 16th, a workout that convinced trainer Ben Colebrook that Limousine Liberal deserves a chance in the Breeders’ Cup.
“He came home well and I think we will go in the Sprint if we can get in,” Colebrook was quoted as saying in the Keeneland Barn Notes for October 16th. “He will probably work again next Saturday.”
“I’d rather not run against Runhappy, but we’ve been about as close to him as anybody else,” Colebrook added, referencing Limousine Liberal’s runner-up effort in the King’s Bishop.
