Travelin Man Part Of Pletcher Entry On Friday

Posted Thursday, Jun 7, 2012


Travelin Man, who won the Grade 2 Swale Stakes last year and the Sir Shackleton Stakes this season, is entered in a $52,000 allowance optional claiming at six furlongs on the main track on Friday as part of an E. Robsham Stables-owned entry with Soaring Stocks. Both, who are sons of Trippi and were bred by Mrs. Robsham, were also nominated by trainer Todd Pletcher for the $60,000 John McSorley Stakes to be run here at five furlongs on the turf on Sunday. 

            Travelin Man arrived on the grounds on Wednesday after shipping without incident from Pletcher’s Belmont Park main base. 

            “We’ll run him and see how he does,” said Anthony Sciametta, who will supervise the four-year-old colt while he is on the grounds. 

            After breaking his maiden at first asking, Travelin Man competed in graded stakes company in the remainder of his five starts in 2011 and finished second in the Grade 2 Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream. He made his last start in the $85,000 Diablo Stakes at Belmont on May 10 and ran fifth after breaking awkwardly from the gate. 

            Soaring Stocks took third on opening day here in the Decathlon Stakes.
