Afleet Again Works for Travers

2010 Travers Logo

Graded stakes winner Afleet Again put in his final workout this morning for Saturday’s 1 ¼ mile Travers. With jockey Cornelio Velasquez aboard, the Grade 3 Withers winner breezed four furlongs in 48.10 seconds over the sloppy main track.

 

“I didn’t think the track was that bad this morning,” said trainer Robert Reid Jr. “This horse loves the slop. He won easily running in it.”

 

This was the first time Velasquez had been on Afleet Again and Reid was pleased how Velasquez and the horse worked together.

 

“I wanted to have him get a feel for the horse,” he said. “He’s somewhat of a quirky horse to ride. He likes to get his head way down. So you have to get a real long hold on him. Cornelio got along well with him.”
