Admiral Alex Thrown to the Wolves

SaratogaLogo

Admiral Alex, trained and owned by Leon Blusiewicz, appears headed to the Grade 1, $1 million Travers for 3-year-olds at 1 ¼ miles on August 28 following his debut win yesterday.

Stalking the pace while racing wide with Kent Desormeaux aboard, Admiral Alex took the lead in the stretch for a one-length victory as he completed the 1 1/8th miles in 1:49.76.

 “He’s a very, very good horse. The best horse I’ve ever had,” Blusiewicz said. “I am pointing him for the Travers.”

Blusiewicz has trained two Travers starters: Lejoli, who was fourth to Runaway Groom in 1982, and Tong Po, who was eased in the 1991 edition won by Corporate Report.

Admiral Alex, a chestnut son of Afleet Alex out of the Kingmambo mare Madam Lagonza, was purchased for $260,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sale.
