Jim Dandy runner-up Tonalist "came back in good order; a touch stiff, but not bad," trainer Christophe Clement said Sunday morning and now will turn his attention to the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers on August 23.


The Belmont Stakes winner was beaten 2 ¼ lengths in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy by Wicked Strong after traveling three wide on the first turn and four wide into the lane. He was also brushed slightly by the winner at the top of the stretch.


"He was second best yesterday with the trip that he had," Clement had. "Wicked Strong ran a really nice race, and we live to fight another day. We will do everything we can to be back in the Travers.


"The main thing is to focus on the future. We've got four weeks. We've got two breezes, and we will do everything we can to have him at his best on Travers Day. He will walk today, walk tomorrow; then he will go back to the track Tuesday morning."
