Unbeaten Flightline Back in Training


Flightline | Benoit

Undefeated 'TDN Rising Star' and jaw-dropping GI Runhappy Malibu S. winner Flightline (Tapit) returned to the track at Santa Anita Saturday after a strain in his hock forced him to miss a planned start in Saturday's GII San Carlos S.

“He jogged a mile which is pretty routine,” trainer John Sadler said. “We think his setback is over and he's back to training.”

Flightline, campaigned in partnership by the powerhouse line-up of Hronis Racing, Siena Farm, Summer Wind Equine, West Point Thoroughbreds and Woodford Racing, made it a perfect three-for-three with an 11 1/2-length victory while making his stakes debut in the Dec. 26 Malibu.
