Trumpet Play Jay, the namesake of long time racetrack bugler Jay Cohen, broke his maiden in his third career start in Monday’s opener and did so like a colt who’ll win again and then some. He’s not quick leaving the gate and needs at least a quarter of a mile to find his legs, but once he gets in gear the son of Orientate can really turn it on. And with Dynaformer on the bottom, the Mark Glatt-trained 4-year-old should be able to stay a middle distance in due time.
