Friend Or Foe: Travers Workout - August 21

Turning in his final breeze for the Travers on Saturday was the New York-bred Friend Or Foe, who covered five furlongs over the main track in 1:00.60, according to the NYRA clockers. Sent out shortly after 6 am, Chester Broman Sr.'s colt was piloted by jockey Rajiv Maragh, who will ride him in the Travers and who guided him to a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy here on July 31, Friend Or Foe's first start around two turns. "I told I told Rajiv we were trying to shoot for around a minute," said trainer John Kimmel. "The track was a little bit on the dry side this morning, and I got him in a 1:00.53, out in 1:13 and 4/5. He actually picked up a horse in the middle of the breeze and used him as a target maybe for an eighth of a mile until he passed him. Rajiv said he felt absolutely great underneath him and he came back and was cooled off in a matter of just minutes. It was about as comfortable a breeze as you could want." With the breeze behind him, Friend Or Foe's major preparations for the race are now complete.
