Shaman Ghost

Shaman Ghost

Owner/breeder Frank Stronach found a four-leaf clover in the Woodbine saddling area last year just before the $1 million Queen’s Plate. It was a good omen indeed, as his homebred colt Shaman Ghost stormed to victory in the Canadian classic for 3-year-olds. It was the fourth win in a row for the Ontario-bred, who went on to be voted Canada’s Champion 3-year-old colt for 2015.

The now 4-year-old son of Ghostzapper is coming on even stronger this season. He won the Grade 2 Brooklyn Invitational at Belmont in June, but then was flat in the Suburban Handicap July 9. He was found to be suffering with a nagging cough that took awhile to subside.

When he did shake it off, he then shook off the competition to come out on top in a four-horse photo when he captured the G1 Woodward at Saratoga Sept. 3 over Mubtaahij and heavily favored Frosted. It was the first Grade 1 score for Shaman Ghost, and he’s now won half of his 12 lifetime starts.

Trainer Jimmy Jerkens told the Daily Racing Form that Shaman Ghost will train up to the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.
