Trainer Wally Dollase said that Good Journey returned in top shape from a third-place finish in the Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) and is considering two options for his next start.
"He came back great," said Dollase Friday. "It will either be the Citation here or Hong Kong (Mile Dec. 15) for his next race." The $500,000 Citation Handicap (gr. IIT) is scheduled Nov. 30 at 1 1/16 miles on turf.
Good Journey, a lightly-raced 6-year-old son of Nureyev, recorded his first graded stakes victory in the Citation last year, defeating Decarchy and Irish Prize on a course softened by a rainstorm.
He extended his victory streak this year to four, including a triumph in the Atto Mile (gr. IT) at Woodbine. Good Journey was a game third behind Domedriver and Rock of Gibraltar after setting the pace in the Breeders' Cup at Arlington Park Oct. 26.
