The Grade 2, $300,000 Remsen on Dec. 7 at Aqueduct racetrack in Ozone Park, N.Y., remains a possibility for Independence Hall after a 12 ¼-length romp in Sunday's Grade 3 Nashua, trainer Michael Trombetta said.
Owned by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partnership, Twin Creeks Racing Stables, Kathleen Verratti and Robert Verratti, the dark bay son of leading first crop sire Constitution became the first juvenile to record a triple digit Beyer Speed Figure this year garnering a 101 from his stunning triumph.
“That's on the radar, but I still need to speak with all the owners,” Trombetta said of the Remsen. “I just want to see what all of our options are. No definite plans have been made yet. He seems to have come out of it in good order.”
Independence Hall arrived at the Nashua off of a first out maiden victory at Parx Racing on Sept. 21, which he won by 4 ¾ lengths. Trombetta was pleased with what he saw on Sunday afternoon.
“It's great. You go up and run in a race like that and you don't really know where you belong. For him to go up there and do what he did was incredible,” Trombetta said.
Bred in Kentucky by Woodford Thoroughbreds, Independence Hall is out of the Cape Town broodmare Kalahari Cat.
