Neck ‘n Neck Will Work Early Next Week

A. Stevens Miles Jr.’s Neck ‘n Neck is expected to turn in his final breeze for the Travers on Sunday or Monday, trainer Ian Wilkes said Friday.

 

“We’re going to work him Sunday or Monday,” said Wilkes. “I’m leaning more towards Monday, but we have to keep an eye on the weather.”

 

Neck ‘n Neck was beaten two lengths by Alpha in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy last month and is expected to face many of the same horses in next week’s Grade 1 Travers, but for the moment, Wilkes isn’t worrying too much about his competition.

 

“I just need to get one spot better, don’t I?” he asked rhetorically outside his Clare Court barn.

 

“I can’t worry about the other horses right now,” he added. “We’ve got eight days, we’ve got another work to get through, and I’ve got to just worry about him.”

 

Neck ‘n Neck came out of the Jim Dandy well and is, according to his trainer, in good shape heading towards the Travers. “He’s fine. No problems,” said Wilkes. “His works have been good and I’m very pleased with him.”
