Filius Scat breezed on Friday working 3 furlongs in 38.45 over the Saratoga main track. That work was 24th best out of 35 at the distance.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the breeze. Steve said, “His turf race for Sunday didn’t go and was brought back for Wednesday so that gave me the opportunity to put this tightener into him. He’s ready to go and I’ll enter him back for Wednesday’s race.”
Steve will enter Filius Scat to the Maiden Special Weight going 5 1/2 furlongs on the turf on Wednesday at Saratoga.
Filius Scat breezed on Friday working 4 furlongs in 49.98 over the Saratoga training track turf course with the dogs up. That work was 34th best out of 55 at the distance.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the breeze. Steve said, “I worked him in company to the inside of another horse and he went very well. It seems he can handle the turf just fine and we’ll look to try racing him on that surface at some point. He galloped out very nicely and he looks like he might be a horse that wants to go long.”
Steve will continue to breeze Filius Scat on a 6-7 day breeze schedule moving him toward his debut which we now expect to be the Maiden Special Weight going 6 furlongs at Saratoga on August 20th.
