A Little Warm Targets Travers

Trainer Tony Dutrow reported Sunday morning that A Little Warm came out of yesterday’s Grade 2 Jim Dandy victory in fine fashion and will now be pointed to the 141st running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers Stakes on Saturday, August 28.

 

“With the way he ran yesterday, if he would have gotten beat, it’s my opinion he would have still proven he deserved a chance at the Travers,” said Dutrow. “He didn’t have to win to get to the Travers, but he had to run fantastic, which he did. We were not surprised with what we saw.”

 

Owned by Edward P. Evans, A Little Warm earned his first graded stakes win in the 1 1/8th mile Jim Dandy, and is now 3-2-0 from five starts this year. Eight Jim Dandy winners have gone on to win the Travers, most recently Street Sense in 2007.
