"He came down with a little fever about five days after the race," Terranova said. "We treated him for a couple days and the temperature came right down. He's been back training for four days now. It seems like he's back to normal. "He's never really gotten sick on us, but he just ran a hard race and whatever he was exposed to took a hold of him for a day or two, but he shook it right off."
Terranova and owner Gatsas Stable are considering Gander for the Meadowlands Cup (gr. II) Oct. 4 and the $250,000 Empire Classic for New York-breds Oct. 19.
"Against New York-breds, he's a standout," Terranova said of last year's Meadowlands Cup winner. "The races are 15 days apart, so there's a possible chance he could run in both races. That would depend on how he's doing."
