Street Life, Neck n’ Neck Ready for Travers

Curlin winner Street Life and Grade 2 Jim Dandy runner-up Neck n’ Neck were pronounced in fine form this morning by their respective connections after the two worked Tuesday in preparation for next Saturday’s Grade 1, $1 million Travers.

 

Street Life, trained by Chad Brown, went five furlongs on the main track in 1:01.04, while the Ian Wilkes-trained Neck n’ Neck covered the same distance, also on the main track, in 1:00.29, the second-fastest of 21 at the distance.

 

“He came out of his work really well and he’ll work once more, maybe on Monday,” said Brown of Street Life, who in the Curlin stayed closer to the pace than in previous outings before coming five-wide to win by 1 ¾ lengths. “He’s been very consistent since the Curlin, and that’s all I’m really looking for, to maintain where he is.”

 

Both Brown and Wilkes will have representatives in Travers Week filly races, with Brown sending Book Review to make her stakes debut in the Travers Day Grade 1 Test for 3-year-old fillies and Wilkes pointing Island Bound to the Grade 1 Ballerina next Friday.

 

Book Review, a Giant’s Causeway filly bred and owned by Gary and Mary West, broke her maiden on May 20 at Belmont Park in her third start and went on to post identical 98 Beyer Speed Figures as runner-up in a one-mile optional claimer on June 24 at Belmont and the winner of a seven-furlong allowance on July 20 at the Spa.

 

Island Bound, who will be making her ninth start of 2012 in the seven-furlong Ballerina, was most recently second by a neck to C C’s Pal in the Grade 2 Honorable Miss at six furlongs.
