Vosburgh Probably Next for Sean Avery

Sean Avery (no. 6), ridden by Joe Bravo and trained by Allen Iwinski, wins the 27th running of the grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap for three year olds and upward on August 7, 2011 at Saratoga Race Track in Saratoga Springs, New York. (Bob Mayberger/Eclipse Sportswire)

Grade 1 winner Sean Avery was in good order Sunday morning after coming off a 13-month break to post a 2 ½-length victory in the six-furlong Affiliate overnight stakes.

“He’s fine,” reported Allen Iwinski, who trains Sean Avery for Black Swan Stables. “He came back in good order, he’s sound, and he ate up.”

Next up for the winner of the 2011 Alfred G. Vanderbilt will be either the Grade 1 Vosburgh on September 29 at Belmont or the Grade 1 Santa Anita Sprint Championship the following weekend.

“I’m leaning toward the Vosburgh,” said Iwinski. “I wish it were another week, but what can you do? It’s hard to come back after a year off and then come back quickly and repeat it. But he’s something else.”

Overall, Sean Avery, a 6-year-old gelded son of Cherokee Run, is 7-1-2 from 11 starts with earnings of $386,180.
