Centennial Farms' Wicked Strong breezed a half mile in :48 3/5 over the Oklahoma training track at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 8 in preparation for his expected start in the Travers Stakes (gr. I) in two weeks.
After a somewhat disappointing Triple Crown campaign, Wicked Strong started the second half of his sophomore season in fine style, defeating Tonalist in the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes (gr. II) July 26 at Saratoga.
Wicked Strong can claim a pedigree with speed, class, and stamina on both sides, making his future prospects intriguing.
From maiden winner to latest addition to the field for the May 3 Kentucky Derby, Centennial Farms' Wicked Strong soared past tiring 8-5 favorite Social Inclusion and runner-up Samraat to win the April 5 Wood Memorial (gr. I).
