|War of Will keeps acting like he’s back–and he’s coming back with a vengeance. With Maximum Security also reportedly doing very well, and with Game Winner pointing the same way, the Pennsylvania Derby is coming up huge.|
Over a wet main track at Belmont Park Saturday, WOW breezed a bullet five furlongs in 59 flat for the showdown at Parx September 21.
“He ended up going a little faster than we anticipated,” said Mark Casse assistant, Jamie Begg. “The track was pretty fast and he did it very easily.”
Since he emptied out after setting the Jim Dandy pace, War of Will has worked thrice, two at Saratoga before yesterday’s breeze, both bullet moves.
“His work yesterday [was] easier than Saratoga. We know he likes water in the track and I think that’s why the time was so quick.”
War of Will will have a soft blowout next weekend and ship to Bensalem on raceday.
