Seven-year-old overseas veteran Toast of New York looks poised for another bid in the U.S. this year, culminating with the Breeders' Cup Classic, a race in which he finished second in 2014.
Remarkably the son of TheWayYouAre didn't race again after that for more than three years, returning a winner at British racecourse Lingfield at the end of 2017. He followed that up with a 12th-place finish in the Pegasus World Cup Invitational this past January.
Since then, the horse trained by Jamie Osborne has been gelded. Osborne said he's looking for a race at Saratoga to serve as a starting point for a fall American campaign.
“We hope we end up with a horse we can have some fun with campaigned at a decent level over the next few years with none of the commercial pressures associated with being a stallion,” Osborne told the Racing Post.
Toast of New York has won four of his 10 career starts. His resume includes a victory in the 2014 UAE Derby and second in the same year's Pacific Classic, in addition to the Classic runner-up effort.
