Travers: Arthur's Tale Remains Possible

Arthur’s Tale, runner-up to Toby’s Corner in the Grade 1 Resorts World New York Casino Wood Memorial last time out, worked five furlongs in 1:01.63 this morning as his connections debate whether to start the Bernardini colt in Saturday’s Grade 1 Travers.

 

“It’s kind of day by day,” said trainer Tom Albertrani. “The distance would suit him; it’s an ideal distance for him. It’s just a matter if he’s up to it. He’s only had a few works leading up to the race. But he’s doing well, and if I get all the right signs he’s doing well I’d be encouraged to run him.”

 

The work was the fifth since Arthur’s Tale returned to training on July 28 at Saratoga .

 

After breaking his maiden at Aqueduct on December 2 in his fourth start, Arthur’s Tale was fourth to Monzon in the Count Fleet and fourth to Toby’s Corner in the Whirlaway before winning an optional claimer on March 23.

 

Overall, the bay colt, a $750,000 purchase at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling sales, is 2-1-1 from eight starts with earnings of $277,070.
