Quality Road, Super Saver Set to Work

Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver is scheduled to return to the Belmont Park work tab Sunday, along with Met Mile hero Quality Road, trainer Todd Pletcher said this morning.

 

Both will go a half-mile, said the trainer.

 

It will be the second move for Super Saver since he finished eighth in the Preakness on May 15 after having given Pletcher his first Derby victory. The Maria’s Mon colt, owned by WinStar Farm, had his first serious work on June 12, going a half-mile in 49.21, and is being readied for a summer campaign that will have as its next major New York objective the Grade 1, $1 million Travers at Saratoga Race Course. 

 

Edward P. Evans’ Quality Road, who is being pointed to the Grade 1 Whitney at Saratoga on August 7, notched his third straight victory of 2010 in the Met Mile on Memorial Day, having won the Grade 3 Hal’s Hope and the Grade 1 Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park over the winter.

 

“Quality Road and Super Saver are doing very well,” said Pletcher.

 

The trainer has penciled in the Grade 1 Mother Goose on June 26 for three of his four nominees to the 1 1/16th mile race – Starlight Partners’ Ailalea, winner of the Grade 3 Dogwood in her most recent start; Glencrest Farm’s Devil May Care, who was 10th in the Kentucky Derby, and Mill House’s Katy Now, who will carry a three-race win streak into her stakes debut.

 

John Velazquez will ride Devil May Care, who won Belmont’s Grade 1 Frizette last fall, while Hall of Famer Edgar Prado has the mount aboard Ailalea, said Pletcher.
