Site Read takes on five others in With Anticipation

Site Read (Tizdejavu), a 21-1 longshot winner of his debut in late July for Bill Mott, will be the probable favorite for his second career start, Wednesday's $200,000 With Anticipation (G2) at Saratoga.

The 1 1/16-mile grass test for juveniles, an ostensible prep for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1), has attracted five others.

American Pharoah gets time to 'chill' back in California

One day after owner/breeder Ahmed Zayat intimated that American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) might have run his last race in defeat in the Travers (G1), Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday that plans have yet to be determined.

"We'll just get him back there (California) and let him chill for a little bit," Baffert said. "He needs to chill.

"We'll just play it by ear. Ahmed Zayat, it's his horse. My job is if I see something, if he were to come up with something I didn't like, then I'd tell him. Nothing has shown up today. We're glad that he looked fine and he's healthy. I didn't see any problem there."

For more quotes from Baffert, including his appraisal of the Triple Crown winner's performance at the Spa, please follow the link to the TwinSpires blog.

Keen Ice 'tired' but doing well after Travers

Trainer Dale Romans reported Sunday morning that Keen Ice (Curlin) was doing well but was tired -- "with every right to be so" -- one day after running down Triple Crown champion American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) in the Travers S. (G1) at Saratoga.

The two colts could rematch in the Breeders' Cup Classic on October 31 at Keeneland, but for now will share a plane ride to Lexington, Kentucky, on Monday. There, Keen Ice will disembark for a van ride to Romans' Churchill Downs barn while American Pharoah and stable pony Smokey continue on to trainer Bob Baffer's base in Southern California.

McLaughlin critiques Frosted's tactics in Travers

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin on Sunday commented about the trip that Frosted (Tapit) received from last-minute replacement rider Jose Lezcano, who employed more aggressive early tactics en route to his third-place finish in the Travers (G1).

"We didn't want to engage (American Pharoah) that early but Jose rode him well. It was unfortunate for us and maybe for American Pharoah, too."
