Jersey Town tunes up for Kelso

Charles Fipke’s Jersey Town was caught by NYRA clockers breezing six furlongs in 1:11.15 Sunday morning as the 5-year-old tuned up for his match against Uncle Mo and Jackson Bend in next Saturday’s Kelso.

 

Trainer Barclay Tagg said the work was faster than he expected but was otherwise pleased with the drill.

 

“It was very good,” said Tagg. “He went a little faster than I wanted to, but he went easily and the track was a little fast. I was looking to have him go in a minute and gallop out in 1:12, which would have been perfect.”

 

The Kelso will be the third start of 2011 for last year’s Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap winner Jersey Town, who was second in both the Teddy Drone on July 31 at Monmouth Park and the Grade 1 Forego on September 3 at Saratoga.
