SARATOGA, N.Y.&ndash; Safe Trip had an unlucky trip when finishing third, slightly more than two lengths behind winner Discreetly Mine, in last month&rsquo;s Jersey Shore Stakes at Monmouth Park. On Monday, trainer Eddie Kenneally is hoping Safe Trip will get a better trip when the pair square off again at Saratoga in the $150,000 Amsterdam, a 6 1/2&#45;furlong race for 3&#45;year&#45;olds.Safe Trip broke well enough but quickly dropped to the rear of the pack moments after the start of the six&#45;furlong Jersey Shore. He advanced boldly outside rivals midway down the backstretch to ultimately join the leaders three&#45;wide entering the stretch before gradually succumbing from the effort as well as the late surge by Discreetly Mine.&ldquo;He took himself back after the start, which is unusual for this horse,&rdquo; said Kenneally. &ldquo;I think it was just a matter of him being uncomfortable with the track the first part of it. Once he got hold of the surface he made a nice run and I thought he ran well for such a lightly raced horse against more seasoned rivals like Discreetly Mine.Safe Trip breaks from post 8 in a field of 10 drawn for the Grade 2 Amsterdam. Kenneally is hopeful an outside post, a legitimate pace, and the added experience will help Safe Trip turn the tables on Discreetly Mine.Discreetly Mine, who won his maiden at Saratoga last summer, has started twice since finishing a well&#45;beaten 13th in the Kentucky Derby. Prior to his victory in the Jersey Shore, Discreetly Mine finished second behind D&rsquo; Funnybone in the seven&#45;furlong, Grade 2 Woody Stephens. He turned in an eye&#45;catching final prep for the Amsterdam, a bullet half&#45;mile in 46.20 seconds on Tuesday. &ldquo;He had to wait for a spot a little bit in the Jersey Shore and when he tipped out he finished really well,&rdquo; said Todd Pletcher, who trains Discreetly Mine. &ldquo;That was the first time he backed up to six furlongs since the Spectacular Bid and he handled it well.&rdquo;General Maximus, one of two New York&#45;breds in the field along with Make Note, continues to improve and exits a game second&#45;place finish behind the undefeated Friend or Foe in the seven&#45;furlong Mike Lee. He figures to contest the pace along with Essence Hit Man and In Jack&rsquo;s Memory.
