Trainer Chad Summers was keeping Breeders’ Cup plans for Mind Your Biscuits (Posse) flexible in the wake of his charge’s 4 3/4-length victory in the GIII Lukas Classic Saturday night at Churchill Downs.
“I’m still going to consider him for all three [Breeders’ Cup] races [Sprint, Dirt Mile and Classic],” Summers said. “I just want to keep my options open. The owners and I will come up with a plan, but we are in a spot right now that we don’t have a ‘Win and You’re In’ entry for the Classic. That’s going to cost $150,000 to enter the race. While we’ve won a lot of money with the horse, it’s still a big chunk of change. I think we can definitely get the distance for the Classic; we proved that last night. We’re just going to have to wait and see.”
With his victory in Saturday’s nine-furlong race, Mind Your Biscuits now has earnings over $4.2 million. Summers said the 5-year-old came out of the race in fine shape.
“Is there another race for him today?” Summers joked. “He’s feeling good this morning. When he was cooling out in the Test Barn last night and he heard the [President of the UAE Cup] go off, he got puffed up and wanted to run again. We’re just lucky to be in a great spot with him and he’s doing well after the race.”
