Even if Pennsylvania's signature event fails to yield major contenders for
the Classic, the race still shapes up as an interesting one. Among the other
Travers players returning here are FIRST DUDE (Stephen Got Even), who still
seeks his first major win after placing in the Travers, Haskell Invitational
(G1), Belmont S. (G1), Preakness S. (G1) and Blue Grass S. (G1). The Dale Romans
charge, who is still eligible for a first-level allowance, endured a three-wide
trip around both turns at Saratoga.
AFLEET AGAIN (Afleet Alex), who upset the Withers S. (G3) earlier this
season, raced wide while racing near the back of the Travers field and had more
left in the tank during the late stages to rally for fourth. Meanwhile, New
York-bred stakes winner FRIEND OR FOE (Friends Lake) raced well off the rail
around both turns at the Spa but failed to significantly improve his position
and finished in midpack.
