Fort Larned Breezes for First Time Since GP 'Cap Fiasco

Fort Larned wins 2012 Whitney

Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Fort Larned breezed four furlongs in :50 3/5 at Palm Meadows Training Center Thursday morning. It was the first workout for the 5-year-old son of E Dubai since stumbling and falling two jumps out of the gate at the start of the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) on March 9.

“He went good. I just wanted a light work to see where he was. Everything’s really good,” trainer Ian Wilkes said. “He listened to the rider. He responded when he was asked to finish it off a little bit. So I’m very happy.”

Fort Larned, who grabbed a quarter in the incident in his 2013 debut, returned to the racetrack last weekend.

Wilkes said a start in the $100,000 Skip Away (G3) at Gulfstream on Florida Derby Day, March 30, would be “very remote.”

“We’ll probably go in the Oaklawn Handicap (April 13),” Wilkes said.
