   Juvenile Champion Shanghai Bobby returned nicely from a five-month hiatus in yesterday’s Aljamin S. The Todd Pletcher-trainee ran a fruitful, yet strenuous freshman campaign, following his successful unveiling at Aqueduct last April with victories in Belmont’s Track Barron S. in June, Saratoga’s GII Hopeful S. Sept. 3, a five-length romp in the GI Champagne S. here Oct. 6 and capped it off with a head victory in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile S. at Santa Anita Nov. 3. With Derby in sight, the Eclipse Award winner kicked off his sophomore season with a runner-up effort behind Itsmyluckyday (Lawyer Ron) in Gulfstream’s GIII Holy Bull S. Jan. 26, but sustained a fractured pelvis when finishing fifth stretching out in the GI Florida Derby Mar. 30. Although the injury didn’t require surgery, Shanghai Bobby was put on the bench for the summer. The clear punters’ pick in this one cruised along rating three wide in second, trailing the pacesetting Dads Caps by about a length down the backstretch. The dark bay moved up slightly to put a tad more pressure on the leader through the turn. Dads Caps appeared as though he was about to shake free by midstretch, but Shanghai Bobby continued to gain ground and was able to catch that foe late and finish ahead of Slan Abhaile, who was rallying up the rail. "You're always concerned when you haven't run a horse in [six] months, champion 2-year-old, and all of that,” said winning trainer Todd Pletcher. “We felt like we had him ready enough, and he showed up and ran his race. I thought he ran well enough today to put us in the mix for the Breeders' Cup Sprint or the Dirt Mile, but we'll see how he bounces out of it." Click for the ldbrisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
