Super Saver: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:15]
With jockey Calvin Borel aboard, Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver breezed five furlongs in 1:01.13 in company with The Roundhouse on the main track. "I wanted to keep him focused down the lane, and having a target early on kept him focused," said trainer Todd Pletcher of the WinStar Farm color-bearer. "Calvin [asked him] at the top of the lane, and he really lengthened out." While Super Saver normally goes out later in the morning, Pletcher sent him out early because he wanted Borel, who was flying to Oklahoma to ride this afternoon, to get "refamiliarized" with the Maria's Mon colt. "Calvin was going to leave last night, but he rearranged his schedule so he could be on the horse this morning," said Pletcher. "I wanted Calvin to have a feel for him and he seemed to be pleased with the way he was going." The trainer said he expected an improved performance in the Travers from Super Saver, who following his Derby win was eighth in the Preakness and then fourth, beaten 4 ¾ lengths, by Lookin At Lucky in the Haskell on August 1. "I think he's going to run an improved race from the Haskell," he said. "Having that race under his belt has helped him. If you look at his form this year, he ran decently in Tampa [third in the Tampa Bay Derby], moved forward with a better race in Arkansas [second in the Arkansas Derby], and then another move forward, so I think he's going to respond the same way."

Friend Or Foe: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:25]
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.

A Little Warm: Travers Workout - August 21 [01:19]
Grade 2 Jim Dandy winner A Little Warm, with exercise rider Tess Bischa up, breezed five furlongs in 1:01.58. "I am super-duper happy with him," said Tony Dutrow of A Little Warm, whom he trains for Edward P. Evans. "My horse went around excellently. It's so rare and so special to feel this good about a horse with such a big race in front of him." The homebred son of Stormin Fever goes into the Travers off winning efforts following a three-month break, having taken an optional claimer at Delaware Park on June 29 prior to his Jim Dandy win. A Little Warm is looking to become the ninth colt to complete the Jim Dandy-Travers double, most recently accomplished by Street Sense in 2007.
