Trainer Todd Pletcher said Sunday that he is likely to run both Calibrachoa and Caixa Eletronica in Saturday’s Grade 3, $150,000 Toboggan Stakes at six furlongs at Aqeduct.

Initially, Pletcher was thinking of running just Calibrachoa – last year’s Toboggan winner – and holding Caixa Eletronica out until the General George on Feb. 20 at Laurel Park.

“They’re both doing well, they both like Aqueduct. I think in Caixa Eletronica’s case I don’t think running him necessarily means that he cannot run back in the General George – 16 days for him might be enough,” Pletcher said.

Others pointing to the Toboggan include Candyman E, Dr Disco, Diski Dance and J. J.’s Lucky Train.
