Jerkens Takes Time With Bold Warrior

Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens is patiently handling Bold Warrior, the regally bred 3-year-old who won a Belmont optional claimer by 3 ¼ lengths on Wednesday.

 

By Horse of the Year Bernardini and out of Champion 3-Year-Old Filly Hollywood Wildcat, Bold Warrior has won two of three starts, having finished second on debut at Gulfstream Park on April 30 and broken his maiden at Belmont on May 21. He has yet to race beyond seven furlongs.

 

“There is reason to believe he can go a distance,” said Jerkens. “He’s not one of those horses you can’t rate.”

 

Jerkens said he wants to eventually run Bold Warrior in graded stakes, but that may not happen until the autumn. In the meantime, Jerkens plans to nominate the colt to the Grade 2 Jim Dandy on July 30 and the Grade 1 Travers on August 27, both at Saratoga Race Course.

 

“We don’t know [where he’ll run next] because it’s so tough right now, unless you wanted to wait for the races in the fall,” said Jerkens. “The two races in Saratoga figure to be very tough, both the Jim Dandy and Travers. We’ll have to see.”
