Few would have anticipated Weyburn to win final Saturday’s Jim Dandy (G2), contemplating that the sphere included Important High quality.Nonetheless, coach Jimmy Jerkens was disillusioned in his fourth-place end behind Important High quality, Keepmeinmind and Masqueparade.”He seemed like he was coaching so beautifully going into it,” Jerkens advised Horse Racing Nation Tuesday. “I used to be shocked he did not supply extra resistance than he did. He was enjoying fairly near first rate tempo and all that, however I assumed he was prepared for the race of his life. So total, it was disappointing.”A part of the explanation for the frustration was that Weyburn, a 3-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile, had come inside a neck of beating Mandaloun in his earlier race, the Pegasus Stakes.”It is Saratoga. Saratoga is bizarre. You simply by no means know what you are going to occur up right here. I do not know why it is why it is like that, however some horses reverse their kind and others go the opposite method. And you do not know why, actually. He seemed like he was set to run rather well and did not run horrible.”Jerkens mentioned that in the course of the experience, jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. “seemed like he was simply cruising. I assume he anticipated every time he requested him, he would speed up, which he did not. He was capable of carry him out to some extent, however he did not have sufficient to make a distinction. After which he came to visit on him – which jocks all the time do after they surge to the lead, they arrive over and guarantee that the horses do not come again on them. That sort of discouraged him, after which he simply did not he simply ambled on dwelling after that.”For Weyburn’s subsequent begin, “we have got some issues on the desk there, the Queen’s Plate, I assume. It is fairly shut, nevertheless it’s nonetheless a race that’s prestigious and some huge cash, and he’d most likely be a giant favourite in there. We have been hoping we may go the path to the Travers, which is not out of the query, however we’re going must sort of ship him again to the observe tomorrow. And Rob Landry, who’s the overall supervisor (of proprietor Chiefswood Stables), he’ll be again from Truthful Hill on (Thursday), come by the barn and we’ll have a look collectively and put our heads collectively and determine what we’ll do.”Jerkens has only some graded-stakes-type horses in his barn proper now. One in every of them is Rocketry, a 7-year-old son of Arduous Spun who received final 12 months’s Marathon Stakes (G2) at Keeneland however has not scored in two begins this 12 months. He’s entered within the Birdstone at Saratoga on Thursday.”He is most likely a bit previous it, however I see a bit resurgence in his coaching and the way in which he appears bodily. I do not know if it is ok to beat these two, Lone Rock particularly and Moretti. However the factor going for him is the mile-and-three-quarters facet of it as a result of he is such a lumbering horse that in the event that they get to going too quick seeking to beat one another, he may be capable of decide up the items. So that is what we’re hoping.”After which there’s King James, a 3-year-old son of Nyquist who broke his maiden in June on his fourth strive after which completed seventh in a 5 1/2-furlong allowance race at Saratoga on June 28.”He did not make a lot headway,” Jerkens mentioned. “So we would give him one other likelihood at it. If not, possibly a high-priced claiming for straight 3-year-olds on the identical distance. Seems like that is what’s in retailer for him.”
