RAPIDINHAS DO TDN

 STARS ALIGN FOR SHADWELL, PLETCHER

by Steve Sherack

When Kiaran McLaughlin announced his retirement earlier this spring, Shadwell Stable's Vice President and General Manager Rick Nichols already had a trainer's name in the back of his mind who could potentially fill the void.

"Actually, it was kind of a no-brainer," Nichols said. "Through Kiaran, I got to know Todd [Pletcher] quite well and always had tremendous respect for him. I would have always liked for him to train for us, but since Todd and Kiaran were such good friends, it was a line that I didn't want to cross, and Todd had similar feelings."

Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum's high-powered global operation and McLaughlin enjoyed a tremendous run together through the years campaigning standouts such as Horse of the Year Invasor (Arg) (Candy Stripes), GI Belmont S. winner Jazil (Seeking the Gold), GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile winner Tamarkuz (Speightstown), GI Hill' 'n' Dale Cigar Mile H. winner Daaher (Awesome Again), GI Donn H. winner Albertus Maximus (Albert the Great), et al.

With McLaughlin exiting the training ranks to take the book of leading rider Luis Saez in April, the Shadwell/Pletcher era was officially underway.

EASY MUNNY IN THE RAVEN RUN 

Venetian Harbor (Munnings) was hustled to the front by Manny Franco and made all the running, holding off Finite (Munnings) by a neck to lead home a one-two finish for her in- form, young sire in the GII Lexus Raven Run S. at Keeneland Saturday.

The bay, favored at 8-5 while seeking her first win since a blowout victory in the GII Las Virgenes S. at Santa Anita back in February, led the field of eight through early fractions of :23.06 and :46.17, and was traveling nicely as they hit the quarter pole.

She kicked for home with a two-length advantage, but was looking for the wire as GII Golden Rod S. and GII Rachel Alexandra S. heroine Finite came with a menacing rail run in deep stretch. Venetian Harbor had just enough left in the tank to hold on, however, and punch her ticket to next month'GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. Cont. p6

COUNTING ON A NORTHERN DANCER TURF WIN

Sam-Son Farm'Count Again (Awesome Again) will try to add his third win of the season in Sunday's 12-furlong GI Northern Dancer Turf S. at Woodbine. A second-out winner going a mile for trainer Neil Howard at Keeneland last fall, the gelding won his sole start for Kent Sweezey in a Tampa allowance in April before finishing third for current trainer Gail Cox in an 8 1/2-furlong Woodbine optional claimer in June. Just missing in second behind Woodbridge (Langfuhr) while stretching to 10 panels at the Etobicoke oval Aug. 29, Count Again closed with purpose to take his latest start in the GIII Singspiel S. Sept. 19. Luis Contreras, aboard for the bay's three most recent starts, returns for the gelding's Grade I debut.

TRIO POISED FOR REMATCH IN E.P. TAYLOR

The top three finishers in this summer's GII Dance Smartly S. regroup in Sunday's GI E.P. Taylor S. at Woodbine. Leading the fray in the Aug. 15 event, Augustin Stable'Theodora B. (Ghostzapper) used the 10-furlong test as a stepping stone to a front-running victory in the 10 1/2-panel TVG S. at Kentucky Downs Sept. 15. Three for four this season--the sole off-the- board finish was registered on Woodbine's synthetic surface-- the 5-year-old is trained Michael Dickinson.

Peter Brant, Mrs. MV Magnier and Mrs. Paul Shanahan'Etoile (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) finished only 3/4 of a length a drift of Theodora B. in the aforementioned Dance Smartly in only her second start in the U.S. for trainer Chad Brown. Victorious in Saint-Cloud's G3 Prix Cleopatre while under the guidance of Jean-Claude Rouget at three, the French-bred closed to finish eighth--beaten 4 1/2 lengths--in her U.S. and sophomore debut in the GI Gamely S. at Santa Anita in May. Rafael Hernandez, aboard in the Dance Smartly, reunites with the 4-year-old for her Grade I unveiling.

Rounding out the triumvirate is John McCormack'Elizabeth Way (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), trained by Canadian Hall of Famer Roger Attfield. On the board in one of five starts in her native Ireland, the chestnut reeled off two straight wins for her new connections at Gulfstream this winter--including the 9 1/2-furlong GIII The Very One S.--before finishing third in the GIII Orchid S. over 11 panels in March. A well-beaten 13th in Churchill's GIII Mint Julep S. May 30, the daughter of graded winner Maid's Causeway (Giant's Causeway) bounced back to annex the one-mile GII Nassau S. June 27. Following her Dance Smartly third, she ran an even fourth behind the re-opposingRidefourthecause (Candy Ride {Arg}) in the nine-furlong GII Canadian S. Sept. 12. The latter steps up to Grade I competition off of a two-race win skein for trainer Gail Cox and Sam-Son Farms.
