Trainer John Sadler told the Daily Racing Form on Monday that he may point the lightly-raced 3-year-old Flightline to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint. Undefeated in two career starts by a combined 26 lengths, the son of Tapit may not have run in a stakes race, but he clearly showed talent in a Sept. 5 allowance race at Del Mar.
Flightline ran six furlongs in 1:08.05 that day, the fastest time at the distance during the six-week Del Mar meet.
A $1 million yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale, Flightline is out of the three-time Grade 1-placed, G3-winning Indian Charlie mare Feathered. He is owned by West Point Thoroughbreds, Hronis Racing, Summer Wind Equine, Siena Farm, and Woodford Racing.
Sadler plans to speak with the owners this week to finalize a plan for the talented colt. If the Breeders’ Cup Sprint is the target, Sadler said Flightline will not make another start prior to the World Championships.
