Trinniberg wins the 2012 Bay Shore Stakes at Aqueduct

© Vanessa Ng
The $250,000 Bay Shore Stakes (G3) featured a field of eight 3-year-olds sprinting 7 furlongs on the main track. Swale Stakes (G3) winner Trinniberg was sent off as the 6-5 favorite over 7-5 second choice Hardened Wildcat, winner of the Fred Capossela last out, and 7-1 third choice How Do I Win, off a third place finish in the Capossela after finishing fourth in the Withers (G3).

Jockey Willie Martinez sent Trinniberg to the lead exiting the chute and he set fractions of 23.46 and 47.41 while 1 1/2 lengths in front of How Do I Win and 15-1 King and Crusader down the backstretch. On the turn, Trinniberg extended his lead, opening up by 3 lengths midstretch through 3/4 in 1:11.50, and cruised past the past 3 lengths in front of Hardened Wildcat in 1:23.46 over the fast track. It was a long 5 1/2 lengths back to How Do I Win third.
