Charitable Man, Warrior's Reward Work

Charitable Man and Warrior’s Reward, both candidates for next Saturday’s Grade 1 Forego, turned in workouts over the Saratoga main track yesterday.


Trained by Tony Dutrow, Charitable Man breezed four furlongs in 49.09, ranked 22nd among 48 horses who worked out at the distance.


“We’ve had him in Saratoga for a while, and he’s been doing fantastic,” said Dutrow of the Mr. and Mrs. William K. Warren colorbearer. “We believe he’s at his very best.”


Dutrow is unsure whether Charitable Man will compete in the Forego and will continue to evaluate the 2009 Grade 2 Peter Pan winner.


The Forego would be Charitable Man’s second start following a fourth-place finish in last year’s Travers when he raced for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. In his comeback bid, Charitable Man was second in a six-furlong optional claimer at Delaware Park on August 2.


“I was surprised and disappointed by the race,” said Dutrow. “I was expecting him to win by 10 lengths. I’m led to believe a supreme improvement awaits him in his next start.”


Warrior’s Reward, in comparison, is probable for the race and breezed five furlongs in 1:05.55, fourth best among 22 workers.


Second in last year’s Grade 2 Jim Dandy, Warrior’s Reward will remain in one-turn races for the duration of the year.


“Any distance he wins at is ideal,” said Wilkes of Warrior’s Reward, who won the Grade 1, seven-furlong Carter Handicap in April and was sixth in the Grade 1, one-mile Metropolitan Handicap on Memorial Day last time out. “I do like the one-turn races for him, like those at six furlongs, seven furlongs, and maybe a mile.”


Wilkes revealed that Warrior’s Reward, owned by A. Stevens Miles, Jr., could have one more workout prior to Sunday’s race, a seven-furlong event on the main track.


“We’ll watch him,” he said. “He’ll tell me. We still have eight days before we run.”
