Grade 1 winner Jersey Town breezed five furlongs in 1:00.59 this morning on the main track in preparation for an anticipated start in the next Sunday’s Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt.

 

Trained by Barclay Tagg for Charles Fipke, the 6-year-old has not raced since finishing second by a half-length to Travelin Man in the Sir Shackleton at Gulfstream Park on March 31.

 

“He’s hard to get to the races,” said Tagg of Jersey Town, who was scratched from the Belmont Park’s Grade 3 Westchester on April 28 and the Diablo overnight stakes on May 10. “He’s had a lot of issues, feet mainly, but he’s OK now. He gets hurt a lot, but he heals fast. I was pleased with his work today.”

 

Winner of the 2010 Cigar Mile Handicap, Jersey Town has been first, second or third in all but two of his 17 lifetime starts and has earned $501,610.

 

Tagg also said that Fipke’s 3-year-old filly Munnings Sister, recently arrived from California, was under consideration for the Grade 1 Prioress on August 4. The daughter of Speightstown, out of the Holy Bull mare La Comete and a full sister to multiple graded stakes winner Munnings, is 3-0-1 from six starts, most recently winning the California Wine Stakes at Pleasanton on June 23.
