A Little Warm to Work Saturday


A Little Warm is scheduled to breeze five furlongs over Saratoga’s Main Track Saturday morning in preparation for an expected start in the Grade 1, $1 million Travers Stakes on August 28. It will be the colt’s first timed workout since winning the Grade 2 Jim Dandy here on July 31.


“As long as it’s a good racetrack Saturday, he’ll go after the break on the main track,” said Tony Dutrow, who trains A Little Warm for owner/breeder Edward P. Evans. “He’ll go an easy five-eighths of a mile. I don’t feel he needs much at all.”


A Little Warm, first or second in all nine of his career starts so far, won the Spectacular Bid at Gulfstream Park in his first start of 2010, then was second in a pair of Grade 2 stakes, the Hutcheson at Gulfstream and the Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds. The son of Stormin Fever took an allowance at Delaware en route to his victory in the Jim Dandy.


“I’m very happy with him,” Dutrow said. “I’m hoping for the best, and he’s saying that he’s doing really well.”
