Fort Larned On Course for Woodward After Friday Workout

Trainer Ian Wilkes declared Fort Larned on course for the Grade 1, $750,000 Woodward on August 31 after the 5-year-old breezed four furlongs on the main track in 48.20 seconds on Friday.

 

Fort Larned was fifth in the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational Handicap on August 3. The Janis Whitman homebred won the Whitney in 2012.

 

"Everything was good," said Wilkes. "He went well and we're very pleased. It was just a maintenance half, and the Woodward is still our target."

 

Like the Whitney, the Woodward is a 1 1/8-mile race for 3-year-olds and up. The connections of the top two finishers, Cross Traffic and Successful Dan, are expected back in the Woodward.
