Travers next for Super Saver
Tuesday, August 03, 2010
Super Saver – the Kentucky Derby winner who finished fourth in yesterday’s Grade 1 Haskell Invitational, missing third by just a nose – will make his next appearance in the 141st running of the Grade 1, $1 million Travers at Saratoga .

 

“I thought it was a pretty good performance, but he did get tired during the last part,” said trainer Todd Pletcher. “We’re looking forward to the Travers.”

 

The Haskell was the first start for Super Saver following his eighth-place performance in the Grade 1 Preakness on May 15.

 

Pletcher added that Malibu Prayer, who yesterday earned her first Grade 1 victory when she won the Ruffian Invitational, exited the race in good shape.

 

“We felt like she was a filly who had shown Grade 1 ability,” said Pletcher.

 

One race under consideration for the Edward P. Evans homebred is the Grade 1 Personal Ensign on August 29.
