Turbo Compressor Headed to Spa

Grade 1 United Nations winner Turbo Compressor and Grade 2 Monmouth Cup victor Rule will head to Saratoga Race Course this week and could make their next starts at the Spa, said trainer Todd Pletcher this morning.

“They came out of their races well,” he said. “The [Grade 1] Sword Dancer [Invitational, 1 ½ miles on August 18] is a possibility for Turbo Compressor and the [Grade 1] Whitney [Handicap on August 4] is a possibility for Rule.”

Turbo Compressor is now 3-for-4 on the turf, having led all the way in yesterday’s 1 3/8-mile United Nations, while Rule earned his first graded stakes since taking the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis at Tampa Bay downs in February, 2010.

Pletcher said that Repole Stable’s Stay Thirsty, who was fifth behind Mucho Macho Man in the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap, came out of that effort in good shape and was also under consideration for the Whitney.
