Lone Sailor's win in the G3 Oklahoma Derby has trainer Tom Amoss thinking about entering the 3-year-old in the Breeders' Cup, reports drf.com. Early plans call for the son of Majestic Warrior to be cross-entered in the Classic and the Dirt Mile.
“I realize we're taking a major step forward here,” said Amoss. “I can't emphasize enough what having a killer instinct – as he had in his race in Oklahoma as opposed to his other races leading up to it – has meant to us moving forward. This is what we were waiting for. It was a breakthrough in his understanding of racing, not just for this race, but for the future. It's exciting.”
Owned by G M B Racing, Lone Sailor has compiled a record of two wins, five seconds and two thirds in his 14 career starts, earning $873,237 with Grade 1 placings in both the Breeders' Futurity and Haskell Invitational.
