Preakness Winner Seize the Grey Shipping to Spa Next Saturday

Seize the Grey | Maryland Jockey Club


Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas said GI Preakness S. winner Seize the Grey (Arrogate) will ship to Saratoga on Saturday, June 1 to prepare for the GI Belmont S. on June 8.

“He came out of the Preakness remarkably well,” Lukas said by phone from his base in Louisville, Ky. “Of all my [15 Triple Crown race winners], he might have come out of his race the best of any of them. He is doing damn good.”

Lukas said Seize the Grey will be the only horse from his barn that will make the trip to Saratoga. His pony, Bucky, will also be on the van.

Seize the Grey is scheduled to work at Churchill Downs on Tuesday or Wednesday, Lukas said.

Seize the Grey gave Lukas his seventh career win in the Preakness, winning the race by 2 1/4 lengths for owner My Racehorse and jockey Jaime Torres.

He also said that after the Belmont, he will ship Seize the Grey back to Kentucky before returning to Saratoga with his stable for the 40-day summer meet at the Spa. That starts on July 11.
