Friend Or Foe Readies for Jim Dandy


Chester and Mary Broman’s undefeated Friend Or Foe will work Saturday morning in his final major breeze before the Grade 2, $500,000 Jim Dandy on Saturday, July 31.


The son of Friends Lake, who scored his third straight win when he defeated General Maximus and Ibboyee in the Mike Lee for New York-breds on June 20, will be making his first start around two turns in the 1 1/8th mile Jim Dandy, the traditional prep for the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on Saturday, August 28.


“He’s been doing everything very well,” said trainer John Kimmel. “Nice, healthy, sound, eating well, looking good, all positive. He’s always had a lot of talent – he’s a great-moving horse. He’s 17 hands tall, and the horse has just been doing everything right. He’s a pleasure to be around.


“He’s a little light on experience, but all the little things that I look to evaluate a horse’s potential to do it, I see in this horse,” added Kimmel. “He gallops out well and he’s got speed, but he’s not a run-off kind of a horse. He’d be very easy to place where you’d want to place him. I’m kind of excited about it.”


On Wednesday, Kimmel will saddle the Bromans’ Khancord Kid in the Grade 2 Lake George, a 1 1/16th mile turf race for 3-year-old fillies. The daughter of Lemon Drop Kid became a graded stakes winner this spring when she took the Grade 3 Herecomesthebride on the turf at Gulfstream Park on March 6, after which she finished fifth in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan over Pimlico’s main track.


Most recently she was fourth in the Grade 2 Sands Point at Belmont on May 31.


“She had a beautiful work at Belmont on July 13 [5 furlongs in :59 4/5], the fastest of 41,” said Kimmel. “Although she didn’t run that badly at Pimlico, she is returning to the surface she’s been most successful at.”
