Lukas Announces Move

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas said he intends to enter 3-year-old colt Thunder Gulch for the $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup, to run against 5-year-old handicap sensation Cigar; and 3-year-old filly Serena’s Song in the $250,000 Beldame, to run against 4-year-old filly star Heavenly Prize.

The horses’ names will be up when fields are drawn today for Breeders’ Cup Preview Day at Belmont Park on Saturday.

The move comes as something of a surprise since both of Lukas’ steeds will be racing on just two weeks rest, having competed in Kentucky Cup races on Sept. 23 at Turfway Park.
