Trainer Eddie Plesa, Jr. confirmed that his graded stakes winner and classic-placed colt Itsmyluckyday will make his next start in the Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney Handicap at Saratoga on Aug. 2.
“He came out of his last race great,” said Plesa, referring to a geared down victory in Monmouth's Grade 3 Salvator Mile on July 6. “We'll keep him here and ship up the day before.”
Paco Lopez, who's ridden the son of Lawyer Ron to his last three victories, will again be aboard in the mile and an eighth Whitney.
