Travers Weekend Preview

While on paper we finally get a showdown between Bernardini and Bluegrass Cat, the Blood-Horse has a wonderfully-titled article pointing out that there’s more to the Travers than the two headliners: Travers Analysis: Pletcher and the Accidental Rabbits. I do like the suggestion of High Cotton as a spoiler, although I really feel that Bernardini is going to trounce the field.

The Kings Bishop is shaping up to be an interesting one as well — again, athough Henny Hughes and Songster are the featured performers, I am curious to see what Lewis Michael (previously seen as Third Spear Carrier to Barbaro’s leading role in the Tropical Park Derby) does at this distance (if he doesn’t go in the St. Louis Derby, of course — he’s entered in both). Fleet Indian is looking good for the Personal Ensign as well.

Lawyer Ron is back in the previously-mentioned St. Louis Derby; an article on the genesis of said race is here. I am also curious to see if Kid Lemonade turns up; I do think he’s improving and he had a nice workout recently.

In other news, it looks like Declan’s Moon had a legitimate excuse for his poor showing last time out — he’s got a lung infection. Perhaps we’re seeing shades of Afleet Alex.

In Barbaro-related news, there’s some nice new video of him grazing which is worth a look; Lael Stables are sending out 2-year-old filly Enticing against the older boys today at York. (While in York, I always recommend a visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre. But that might just be me).
