SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. &ndash; Trainer John Kimmel has big plans for his New York-bred colt Friend or Foe this fall, and he wants to have the horse as prepared as possible to tackle a schedule he hopes will include the Woodward, Jockey Club Gold Cup, and the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Classic.\r\nAfter running a lifetime best number on some speed figures off a six-month layoff in a June 5 overnight stakes at Belmont Park, Kimmel opted to skip running Friend or Foe back in a graded event and instead will drop him into Monday&rsquo;s $75,000 Evan Shipman Stakes restricted to New York-breds at Saratoga. Friend or Foe, a son of Friends Lake, is 3 for 3 against New York-breds.\r\nAfter ending his 3-year-old season with a win in the Empire Classic for New York-breds and a fifth-place finish in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile, Friend or Foe took a little longer than expected to get ready for his 4-year-old season. That, plus the fact Kimmel couldn&rsquo;t get the race he wanted to go, delayed Friend or Foe&rsquo;s return until June 5 when he outlasted Grade 1 winner Rail Trip in the four-horse Easy Goer Stakes.\r\nOff that race, the Whitney here on Aug. 6, was a possibility for Friend or Foe, but Kimmel noted that Friend or Foe has yet to win around two turns and felt the Evan Shipman was a better spot to get that accomplished.\r\n&ldquo;We were trying to find a spot where we could get a good two-turn race into him and get him some confidence in running two turns,&rdquo; Kimmel said. &ldquo;The timing was right, we figured we could get a fairly comfortable group of horses to run against with the idea that we could come back in five weeks and run in the Woodward [Sept. 3].&rdquo;\r\nFriend or Foe will be coupled with Mine Over Matter as both are owned by Chester and Mary Broman.\r\nTrainer Dominic Galluscio entered both Johannesburg Smile and Stormy&rsquo;s Majesty in the Evan Shipman, but will only run Stormy&rsquo;s Majesty as Johannesburg Smile ran here on Saturday. Stormy&rsquo;s Majesty is 5 for 6 versus New York-breds, including a neck victory in the Albany Stakes here at 1 1/8 miles last summer. Stormy&rsquo;s Majesty also won the Grade 3 Discovery last fall at Aqueduct, another two-turn 1 &nbsp;1/8-mile race.\r\nStormy&rsquo;s Majesty is coming back 18 days after running fourth in a turf stakes in which he set the pace after breaking from the rail. The relatively short turnaround time doesn&rsquo;t bother Galluscio.\r\n&ldquo;That horse eats so good and is so strong, I don&rsquo;t think that&rsquo;s going to compromise him,&rdquo; said Galluscio, who believes his horse will be forwardly placed.\r\nIcabad Crane was beaten a head in this race last year by Giant Moon while finishing a head in front of Groomedforvictory. He has won his last two starts versus statebreds and comes out of a last-place finish in the Grade 2 Suburban at Belmont on July 2.\r\nSaratoga opener beats the heat\r\nWhile it was hot on opening-day, Saratoga enjoyed a strong opening-day businesswise\r\nA crowd of 25,155 wagered $3,551,745 on Friday&rsquo;s 10-race card, a 13.4 percent increase over last year&rsquo;s handle of $3,130,756. An additional $407,383 was wagered at Belmont Park and Aqueduct, which were both open for simulcasting. The attendance figure was up 8.5 percent from 2010 when 23,178 showed up on a wet day.\r\nAll-sources handle, which includes wagers made from all simulcast outlets, was $15,871,449, up 18.5 percent from the $13,349,050 wagered last year. Saratoga may have benefitted from the cancellation of live racing at several tracks in the Northeast due to extreme weather, including Monmouth Park.
