Tiger Blood breezed on Wednesday working 4 furlongs in 48.77 over the Gulfstream Park main track. That work was 4th of 17 at the distance.

We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the breeze. Steve said, “He breezed well. I’m pointing him to the same race he’s been running in on September 5”

Steve will breeze Tiger Blood on a 7 to 10-day breeze schedule training him up to his next race which will be the Pembroke Park handicap $60,000 going 5 furlongs on the turf at Gulfstream Park on September 5.

Tiger Blood ran a very strong second as he rallied late but could not get to the wire in time at Gulfstream Park on Saturday. Breaking from post 1 Tiger Blood was outsprinted to the stretch in the two-path, altered course to the rail rallying past the eighth-pole, moved out from behind Harry’s Ontheloose late, and finished gamely for the place just inside Romario.

We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He had a rough trip. He had to check a couple of times and then was behind horses. It was a tough luck trip.”

We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “We’ve run into some rough racing luck the past few races with this horse. With clean trips he might have won any of his races with us. He’s a warrior. The partners are having a lot of fun with him.”

Tiger Blood earned $12,600 for Saturday’s second place finish.

We’ll see how Tiger Blood comes out of the race and we’ll point him accordingly.
