Friend Or Foe Ready to Run

Friend Or Foe, winner of the 2010 Empire Classic, exited a bullet five-furlong work on Friday in good order and is ready to begin his 4-year-old campaign, said trainer John Kimmel.

 

The Friends Lake colt, who won four of his seven starts and finished fifth in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile to conclude his 3-year-old season, went five furlongs in 59.45, the fastest of 15 at the distance.

 

“He’s ready,” said Kimmel of Friend Or Foe, who was named 2010’s Top New York-bred 3-Year-Old Male. “He’s a fresh horse and he’s doing very well. He’s got a lot of topside. We’ll look for a race for him in the next couple of weeks. He’s still eligible for a non-winners of three other than.”

 

One of the spots Kimmel is considering down the road for the strapping chestnut is the Grade 2, 1 1/8 mile Suburban on July 2.

 

“We’ll see how he does,” said trainer. “We hope to go a little further with him.”

 

Kimmel added that Uncle T Seven, winner of the 2010 Ashley T. Cole, is also nearing a return, having finished fourth in an optional claimer on the turf at Gulfstream in February in his most recent start.

 

“He went to the farm for a couple of months after that for a freshening,” he said. “He breezed a half-mile Friday [48.97] and he didn’t get tired. The Kingston is a possibility. We’ll have to go under the premise he didn’t lose much conditioning.”
