Poseidon’s Warrior Works Easy 4f at Spa

Poseidon’s Warrior (#5) and jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. winning the Grade 1, $400,000 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap.

Poseidon’s Warrior, a candidate for Saturday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Forego, worked four furlongs in an easy 49.75 seconds this morning on the main track.

 

“It went OK,” said trainer Robert “Butch” Reid. “He did his normal thing where he kind of bears out a little bit, but he came back bucking and squealing. We’re still in discussion stages [about the Forego].”

 

Poseidon’s Warrior, a 4-year-old son of Speightstown, picked up the first Grade 1 win of his career when he upset the Alfred G. Vanderbilt on August 5 at odds of 36-1. The Forego is a seven-furlong race, and Poseidon’s Warrior is 0-for-2 at the distance.

 

“The question is, do we run in the Forego or wait for the [Grade 1, $400,000] Vosburgh [on September 29 at Belmont Park],” Reid said. “He came off a monster race in the Vanderbilt. I’m debating whether to give him the full eight weeks. We want to make sure he’s set up right for the Breeders’ Cup. We’re waiting to see how the [Forego] is coming up, but the money is the money, and it’s another Grade 1. We already won one, but we’d like to confirm it.”
