Calumet Farm’s True Timber (Mineshaft) will be pointed to the G1 Godolphin Mile Mar. 30 at Meydan. Runner-up in the GI Cigar Mile, the bay was last seen finishing seventh in the GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational S. last month.
“We are planning to run him in the Godolphin Mile and he’s doing really well,” trainer Kiaran McLaughlin confirmed. “He’s training great and we will breeze him weekly before we ship in. He’ll be based at Meydan with the rest of the American horses.
He continued, “He came out of the Pegasus in good shape. He’s probably better at a mile and I’m happy to try him back at one there. He’s a very nice horse and other than the Pegasus, he has been running really well. He was very wide the other day and that really hurt his chances.”
Calumet will also be represented by Bravazo (Awesome Again), trained by McLaughlin’s mentor D. Wayne Lukas, in the G1 Dubai World Cup.
