Effinex, Shaman Ghost On Schedule For Jockey Club Gold Cup

Trainer Jimmy Jerkens indicated Sunday morning that he is pleased with the way multiple graded stakes winners Effinex and Shaman Ghost are training in preparation for the Grade 1, $ 1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup on October 8. The pair will have one more breeze before the 1 1/4-mile race, with Grade 1 Woodward winner Shaman Ghost having breezed seven furlongs on Friday in 1:29.15 while Effinex covered the same distance in 1:28.05 on Wednesday.

“They’re workmen like, both of them,” said Jerkens. “They’ve been doing it a long time and they do what they’re asked.

“They’ll each get one more work this coming week before the race,” he added. “I’m not exactly sure when or the distance but both are looking good so far.”
