Lone Rock will wait for Razorback, Thomas Shelby entered in Fifth Season

Lone Rock wins the Tinsel Stakes at Oaklawn Park
Coady PhotographyLone Rock ran down his stablemate Thomas Shelby to win the Tinsel Stakes while shortening up to 1 1/8 miles. He will try 1 1/16 miles in the Razorback.

Lone Rock will launch his 7-year-old campaign next month at Oaklawn Park.

Trainer Robertino Diodoro said Tuesday that the millionaire is headed for the Grade 3, $600,000 Razorback Handicap on Feb. 12.

“We’d been talking over a few different options and think that’s the best one right now,” said Diodoro, who trains Lone Rock for Flying P Stable and R.A. Hill Stable.

Lone Rock won 7 of 9 races last year, including a pair of Grade 2 events at marathon distances. He shortened up to 1 1/8 miles for his last start, the $200,000 Tinsel on Dec. 18 at Oaklawn, and won by three-quarters of a length over stablemate Thomas Shelby.

The Razorback will be run over 1 1/16 miles. Lone Rock is a winner at the distance at Oaklawn. For his win in the Tinsel, the horse earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 98.

“I thought he showed a lot of grit,” Diodoro said. “Being trapped down inside, shortening up in distance, he still came running and got the job done.”

Thomas Shelby is headed for the $150,000 Fifth Season on Saturday at Oaklawn. It will be run at a mile, which is one of the reasons he was pointed to the race, said Diodoro.

The field from the rail for the nine-horse Fifth Season is: Thomas Shelby, Rated R Superstar, Snapper Sinclair, Necker Island, Concert Tour, Atoka, Long Range Toddy, Silver Prospector, and Mucho.

The forecast for Saturday is a high of 42 degrees and a 71 percent chance of rain, according to The Weather Channel.
