Mind Your Biscuits

Mind Your Biscuits, runner-up in last year’s TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint, returns to the race with new credentials and a new trainer.

He greatly enhanced his bankroll by winning the Dubai Golden Shaheen in March before keeping his 2017 record perfect with a victory in the Belmont Sprint Championship Stakes at Belmont Park July 8, which gave him a “Win and You’re In” berth into the TwinSpires Sprint. Both triumphs came for Chad Summers, whose first start as a trainer was the second-place finish of Mind Your Biscuits in the Gulfstream Park Sprint Stakes on February 25. The Golden Shaheen then became the initial victory for Summers, who is in his early 30s.

Summers grew up going to the New York tracks with his father and brother. He has an eclectic resume that includes stints as a racing analyst on radio and as a stable hand. His work as a bloodstock adviser kept him busy at auctions and eventually led to the acquisition of Mind Your Biscuits. Sold as a yearling for $47,000 at Keeneland’s January mixed sale, Mind Your Biscuits was back on the block for Fasig-Tipton’s New York-bred sale in Saratoga Springs that August. Bidding again ended at $47,000, a price under expectations so he failed to change hands. The following April at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s auction, the price was again $47,000 but again, too low for the sellers who included the Summers clan.
Summers then called on Joaquin Guerro of J Stables to join the partnership. Head of the Plains Partners were added to the group prior to last year’s Breeders’ Cup.

"Training horses is not an easy profession; nothing in this industry is easy,” Summers told Blood-Horse in a story posted March 23. “I'm blessed enough to have a great team of support staff with me. So that gives us the confidence to do what we're going to do."
