Nonios Will Arrive for Travers on Monday

Nonios, most recently second to Paynter in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, had his final serious work for Saturday’s Grade 1, $1 million Travers this morning, covering four furlongs in 47.50 seconds, handily, over Del Mar’s Polytrack surface.

 

The Pleasantly Perfect colt, owned by Green B. Smith, Jr., is scheduled to arrive at the Spa on Monday, said his Hall of Fame trainer, Jerry Hollendorfer.

 

“He had a nice blowout this morning,” said Hollendorfer by phone from San Diego, where he returned Sunday morning after saddling Via Villaggio to a third-place finish behind Questing in the Grade 1 Alabama. “We have a colt we think is doing well. We try not to bring our horses anywhere that we don’t think they have a good chance, and I don’t think we’re being frivolous or foolish with him.”

 

Hollendorfer said he was “thrilled” to have finished third in the Alabama , a race he won in 2010 with Blind Luck.

 

“Questing’s performance was quite something to see,” he said. “I don’t know what is it with that filly wandering in the stretch, but I told Kiaran [McLaughlin] it didn’t make any difference, so long as she won. We had a good laugh.”
