Asmussen Breezes Travers Day Nominees

Dominus, Wine Police, and Justin Phillip, trainer Steve Asmussen’s three nominees for Travers Day stakes, turned in five-furlong breezes on Wednesday over a Saratoga main track labeled “good.”

 

Winner of the Grade 2 Dwyer and third in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy, George Bolton, Stonestreet Stables, and Spendthrift Farm’s Dominus was caught by NYRA clockers traveling the distance in 1:00.68, the fourth quickest of seven moves. He is on the nominee list for the Grade 1, $ 1 million Travers Stakes.

 

J. Kirk and Judy Robison’s Wine Police and Zayat Stables’ Justin Phillip, respectively third and fourth in the Grade 2 Amsterdam, are being pointed toward starts in the Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop at seven furlongs. Wine Police was timed in 1:03.56, while Justin Phillip was clocked in 1:01.45.

 

“We’ve had a little adjusted work period for all of them because of all the rain earlier in the week,” said Asmussen. “We’ll see how they come out of this.”
