Bayern Arrives for Travers

Grade 1 winner Bayern, 2-1 morning-line favorite for Saturday's Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers, arrived at Saratoga Race Course around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

 

Bayern and multiple graded stakes-winning filly Fiftyshadesofhay, running in Friday's Grade 1, $600,000 Personal Ensign, walked the courtyard of trainer John Terranova's barn following the trip from California.

 

"It was very good, an easy ship," said Jim Barnes, assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert. "That's one good thing about this horse; he's a good traveler. It doesn't seem to faze him."

 

Bayern will break from post 2 in the 10-horse Travers, looking for his third consecutive victory and second in a Grade 1. He won the Grade 2 Woody Stephens presented by RTN on June 7 at Belmont Park, and followed with a dominating triumph in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational on July 27 at Monmouth Park.

 

"He's doing very good. We wouldn't have come otherwise," said Barnes. "If you're going to come 2,500 miles, you have to make sure that they're hitting on all cylinders. Everything seems good."

 

Barnes said Bayern will have a light gallop on Saratoga's main track Thursday morning.
