"He sprained an ankle in that race, but we think he should be ready to go in the race this Saturday," said trainer J. Larry Jones. "We worked him the other day and he just did fine, so he is ready. We are looking to take things one step at a time, but we are hoping to use the Owners Day Stakes as a prep for the MassCap. But we still have to run the race this Saturday. We do not want to get to far ahead ourselves. The Owners Day Stakes is a very tough race with some nice horses."
