Dutrow Quartet Work at Saratoga

Trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. had a quartet of horses on Saratoga Race Course’s main track this morning for six-furlong works: undefeated Trickmeister, multiple graded-stakes winner D’ Funnybone, promising 2-year-old Boys At Tosconova, and last year’s Grade 1 Wood Memorial winner, I Want Revenge.

 

Trickmeister, who was recently acquired by IEAH, handled three-quarters of a mile in 1:12.40. Trickmeister has been unbeaten in three starts – all at Delaware Park – including his most recent start in the Barbaro Stakes, and is being pointed to the 141st running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on Saturday, August 28.

 

D’ Funnybone, who is targeting the Grade 1, $250,000 King’s Bishop Stakes for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs on August 28 as part of the Travers Day undercard, covered the distance in 1:13.45, handily.

 

“Everything went good this morning. I just liked the way that they went,” Dutrow said.

 

Boys At Tosconova, who posted a dazzling maiden win at Belmont Park last month with a 12-length margin, breezed the distance in 1:15.90. He is being pointed to the Grade 1, $250,000 Three Chimneys Hopeful for 2-year-olds running seven furlongs on Saratoga’s Closing Day on September 6.

 

“We’re in love with him. I’m satisfied with the work,” Dutrow said. “We’re as happy with him as we have ever been.”

 

I Want Revenge had the fastest work of the quartet with a time of 1:11.24, handily. It was his fifth workout since finishing third to Haynesfield in the Grade 2 Suburban, which was his first race since being scratched as the morning line favorite in last year’s Kentucky Derby.

 

Along with I Want Revenge, Dutrow has Grade 1 winner Rail Trip as a possible starter in the Grade 1, $750,000 Woodward at 1 1/8th miles on September 4.

 

The trainer added that he was pleased with the way Acting Happy, most recently third in the Betfair TVG Coaching Club American Oaks, is progressing toward the Grade 1 Betfair TVG Alabama on Saturday, August 21. The filly worked six furlongs in 1:14.55 on Monday.
