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
“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.
