Afleet Express Possible for Gold Cup

Afleet Express, winner of the Grade 1 Travers on August 28, has settled in at Belmont Park and is preparing for a possible start in the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup on October 2.

 

“He’s doing OK,” said Jimmy Jerkens, who trains the son of Afleet Alex for Gainesway Stable and Martin L. Cherry. “We don’t know yet if we are going to the Gold Cup. We’re undecided.”

 

The Gold Cup would be Afleet Express’ first start against older horses.

 

“It’d be tough, but it’s been done before,” said Jerkens. “We’d get a weight break, and 3-year-olds can fair well late in the year. He’s still a pretty fresh horse. He hasn’t been over-raced, and he didn’t race in the spring.”
