Avery Island might be headed for the Dec. 2 Remsen Stakes after this win in the Nashua on Sunday.

Following Avery Island’s impressive Sunday victory in the Grade 2 Nashua at Aqueduct, Godolphin and trainer Kiaran McLaughlin could have two starters in the Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct.

Enticed, the third-place finisher in the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont Park, also is being pointed to the Grade 2, $250,000 Remsen, a 1 1/8-mile race for 2-year-olds Dec. 2.

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Saturday was won by Good Magic, the Champagne runner-up.

“The form of that race held up well,” McLaughlin said.

McLaughlin said he would talk to Jimmy Bell, president of Godolphin USA, about running Avery Island in the Remsen. Avery Island won a 1 1/16-mile maiden race at Belmont Park by 5 1/4 length in his start prior to the Nashua, which he won by 4 3/4 lengths.

“He’s very well bred and wants distance,” McLaughlin said. “It’s exciting to think about going into next year with two nice 3-year-olds.”

Both Enticed and Avery Island were bred by Godolphin and come from nice female families.

Enticed, by Medaglia d’Oro, is out of three-time Grade 1 winner It’s Tricky, who won the Acorn and Coaching Club American Oaks in 2011 and the Ogden Phipps the following year.

Avery Island, by Street Sense, is a daughter of Kinda Spicy, who won both of her starts before being retired. Kinda Spicy is out of the Chilean mare Isola Piu Bella, who won 9 of 18 starts, including the Grade 3 Sabin, Grade 3 Sixty Sails, and the Obeah Stakes.
