Charge It, the 23-length winner of the Dwyer (G3), returned to the work tab Tuesday morning. He worked four furlongs in 49.21 seconds over the Belmont training track, his first published drill since Aug. 13. He had been preparing for a start in the Travers (G1), though a foot abscess derailed his plans.

According to David Grening of the Daily Racing Form, Charge It will target the Kelso (G2) at Aqueduct on Oct. 29 for his return. If he does make that goal, would be Charge It's first start against older horses.

These three graded-stakes winners has posted works Tuesday morning. For information about where they and other racing stars may be headed soon, visit the Horse Racing Nation Stakes Schedule.
