Chasing Time Update

Chasing Time got back on track with a light gallop yesterday morning, going once around the main track at Churchill Downs.

Nothing is set in stone yet in terms of a next race for Chasing Time, but he will be nominated to the six-furlong Gold Fever Stakes at Belmont Park on May 15th. Another MRH horse, recent Hutcheson Stakes winner Provocateur, is also targeting this race. So, in order to keep our options open, Chasing Time will also be nominated to the Grade 3 Chick Lang Stakes at Pimlico on May 21st, also run at six furlongs on the Preakness undercard. Both stakes are prep races for the seven-furlong Woody Stephens Stakes at Belmont Park on Saturday, June 11th.

We will see how Chasing Time trains in the coming weeks before deciding on what race to target. It may even be an allowance race, but nominating to these stakes and assessing both his training and the potential competition does give us some options.

Since he returned to the track, our 3-year-old son of Not This Time colt is feeling fresh and has been training a little more forward than we would like to see coming off of his short refresher at WinStar farm. All of the Derby chaos and a very crowded Churchill Downs track has Chasing Time on his toes. With the Gold Fever Stakes as an option in New York, trainer Steve Asmussen reported that he will go ahead and ship Chasing Time to Belmont Park, a much quieter track this time of year.

Chasing Time Update

Chasing Time has completed all of his hyperbaric treatments and has been doing well. As a precaution, he was examined by the vet and had his blood pulled for testing. His bloodwork came back normal and he is in great physical condition. With that being said, he will be shipping back to trainer Steve Asmussen’s barn to return to training. He is scheduled to ship out this morning!

Chasing Time Update

Chasing Time took no time settling in since arriving to WinStar Farm. We caught him snoozing, without a care in the world.

He will be treated a minimum of 5 times in the hyperbaric chamber before being re-examined to decide if he will have additional treatments or return to training at that point.

Chasing Time Update

After Chasing Time’s performance yesterday, trainer Steve Asmussen scoped the colt and the results revealed that he bled during the Arkansas Derby. On a scale of 1 to 5, he bled a 3. Chasing Time will be sent to WinStar Farm to be treated in the hyperbaric chamber which has been proven to help promote healing of the lungs in horses that have bled. Chasing Time did exit his race sound and we were at the barn this morning to get video of him jogging.

Chasing Time Update

We checked in with trainer Steve Asmussen today and we are very excited to announce that he has confirmed we will be targeting the $1.25 million Arkansas Derby on April 2nd with Chasing Time. Steve reported that the colt came out of the race in good order. He does believe Chasing Time will benefit greatly from a fitness standpoint from having run in the 1 1/16-mile Rebel Stakes, noting that the horse was blowing pretty good after the race. He’s optimistic that he will gain a lot from that race from an experience standpoint as well and is looking forward to seeing Chasing Time progress in his next start.
