OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Haul Anchor, who won a pair of route stakes for New York-breds and was being considered for the Grade 3, $300,000 Gotham on March 4, is sidelined for a few months due to a knee chip, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said Thursday.

McLaughlin said Haul Anchor underwent surgery Thursday to remove the chip and likely will be out of training for two to three months.

Haul Anchor, a son of Bernardini owned and bred by Chester and Mary Broman, won the Gander Stakes on Jan. 28. Prior to that, he took the East View. Both were two-turn races at a mile and 70 yards over the inner track.
