Romans has Lofty Goals for Prayer for Relief

Trainer Dale Romans has lofty goals for Prayer for Relief, who was third, beaten two lengths, in the Grade 1 Woodward on Saturday.

 

Romans on Sunday said Prayer for Relief, a 6-year-old owned by Zayat Stables, will be pointed toward the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup on September 27 at Belmont Park, with the Breeders' Cup and Dubai World Cup being long-term objectives.

 

"Those things are all in play," Romans said.

 

In the Woodward, Prayer for Relief raced in midpack early and made a strong run in the stretch without threatening the top two. After the race, Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez said Prayer for Relief "hung" before galloping out strongly.

 

"I think Johnny learned a little bit about him," said Romans. "It'd be nice to get [Velazquez] back next time. This is a good horse. It's hard to say he's peaking at his age, but he's definitely showing some of his best form. He's doing awfully good."
