Eightyfiveinafifty tops Bay Shore

Email

Eightyfiveinafifty, who flirted with the Triple Crown trail before bolting in the Whirlaway Stakes in February, returns to action in Saturday's Grade 3, $200,000 Bay Shore Stakes at seven furlongs.

The last time Eightyfiveinafifty sprinted, he won a six-furlong maiden race by 17 1/4 lengths, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 105. Eightyfiveinafifty will break from the rail, the same post he had in the Whirlaway. Ramon Dominguez replaces Jorge Chavez. Chavez was named on Castaneda, the Jimmy Winkfield Stakes winner, but that horse is expected to run in a second-level New York-bred allowance race on Friday.

The Bay Shore picked up some late entrants, including Hurricane Ike, a Southern California-based colt who has raced exclusively on synthetic surfaces, and Noah's Dream, who was supplemented to the field for $2,000 by owner Priscilla Graham and trainer Graham Motion.

Others entered include El Rocco, a first-level allowance winner at Philadelphia Park; Raynick's Jet, a winner of 2 of 3 starts in New York-bred company, and Remand.
