Race of the Week 2017

Fort Larned Remains On Track for Whitney Title Defense

Trainer Ian Wilkes said Janis R. Whitman's Fort Larned came out of his Tuesday breeze (five furlongs in 1:01.19) in good shape and that the 5-year-old will have another workout sometime between now and his title defense in the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational Handicap on August 3.

 

"[The timing] will depend on him," said Wilkes. "What day, I'm not sure. It just depends on where he is. I'll watch him go back to the track."

 

Fort Larned's Tuesday breeze came three days after he was credited for a five furlong work in 1:03.81. The son of E Dubai is entering the Whitney off a 6 ¼-length win in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap on June 15 at Churchill Downs.
