Derby Winner Super Saver to Start in Haskell
Monday, June 28, 2010
WinStar Farm’s Super Saver, winner of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), will make his next start in the Izod Haskell Invitational (gr. I) at Monmouth Park Aug. 1, trainer Todd Pletcher confirmed June 27.

Pletcher made the decision after Super Saver worked five furlongs in 1:01.82 at Belmont Park earlier in the morning. The confirmation was announced in a press release by Monmouth Park

“We’re pointed for the Haskell,” Pletcher said in the statement. “He’s training great and we’re on schedule to be at Monmouth on Aug. 1.”

Pletcher and WinStar Farm teamed to take back-to-back runnings of the $1 million race in 2006 with Bluegrass Cat and 2007 with Any Given Saturday .

Super Saver, under jockey Calvin Borel, rallied to a 2 1/2-length win in the Kentucky Derby over a sloppy Churchill Downs main track May 1. The victory was the first in the Run for the Roses for Pletcher.

In his last start, the Preakness Stakes, Super Saver stalked the early pace but faded in the lane to finish eighth. Besides his most recent work, Super Saver has turned in a pair of half-mile breezes at Belmont since the Preakness.

The homebred bay colt is by Maria's Mon out of the A.P. Indy mare Supercharger. He has won three of eight starts while earning more than $1.8 million.

The Haskell will air live on ABC from 5 to 6 p.m. EDT.
