Easy Whitney Breeze For Endorsement

Endorsement had his final serious work for Saturday’s Grade 1, $750,000 Whitney Handicap this morning, traveling an easy five furlongs in 1:04.52 after the renovation break on the main track.

 

“It wasn’t nearly as fast as last week. I didn’t want him to go nearly as fast as last week,” said trainer Eoin Harty of Endorsement, who on July 23 breezed five furlongs in a bullet 58.96. “I’m not sure what the official time was, but he did it very easily and came back very well. I don’t think his fitness is in question.”

 

The 5-year-old son of Distorted Humor is 2-1-1 from five starts this year, including a victory in the Grade 3 Texas Mile, in which he earned a career-high Beyer Speed Figure of 102. Endorsement also was third behind Alternation in the Grade 3 Pimlico Special, in which he led until the final yards, and seventh in the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap after becoming unruly in the paddock.

 

Harty said he anticipates the Casner Racing color-bearer to be forwardly placed in Saturday’s 1 1/8-mile race.

 

“I don’t know what’s in there, but I envision myself being on the lead as long as possible,” he said. “Hopefully, that’s long enough.”
