Bella Shambrock meets Bring Forth again

Email

Bella Shambrock will try to turn the tables on Bring Forth, who defeated him two starts back, when the pair head a field of nine 2-year-olds racing five furlongs in the $50,000 Prairie Gold Juvenile Stakes at Prairie Meadows on Tuesday.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Bella Shambrock crushed a field of maiden special weight rivals by 14 lengths going five furlongs last out on June 2 at Monmouth Park, earning a Gold Juvenile field topping Beyer Speed Figure of 83.

Before his maiden victory, Bella Shambrock faded to finish fourth as the 6-5 favorite behind Bring Forth, whom he faces again on Tuesday, going 4 1/2 furlongs at Keeneland on April 27. Tim Doocy picks up the mount on Bella Shambrock, a son of Grand Slam, in the Gold Juvenile.

Bring Forth, trained by Eric Reed, will be making his first start since winning his maiden in that April 27 race, when he led gate to wire and won by a widening 6 3/4 lengths. Bring Forth has worked well lately, recording three bullet drills in the past month.

Alex Birzer picks up the mount on Bring Forth, who figures to be close to the pace in the Gold Juvenile.

Winamac Jack, trained by Ray Tracy, is the leading local hopeful entered Tuesday. Winamac Jack scored an impressive 9 3/4-length victory over Iowa-bred maidens here last week. Martin Escobar will be in to ride Winamac Jack.
