Gantry Arrives for Smile Sprint
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (June 28, 2012) – Brittlyn Stable, Inc.’s Gantry, a three-time sprint-stakes winner at Fair Grounds last seen finishing third behind 2011 Preakness winner Shackleford and 2011 Eclipse Award champion sprinter Amazombie in the Grade 2 Churchill Downs Handicap, arrived at Calder Casino & Race Course Thursday morning in advance of a start in next weekend’s Grade 2 Smile Sprint, part of the annual Summit of Speed program.
“We got in about ten o’clock this morning and he was bouncing around when he got off the van and everything looked good,” trainer Ron Faucheux said. “He’s been training great, and our plan was to get him here with enough time to get in a work over the track, which we’ll probably do on Sunday.”
