SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Trainer Mark Casse said Sunday morning that Classic Empire will not run in the $1 million Haskell and will be pointed instead to the Grade 1 Travers at Saratoga on Aug. 25.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Hope the little horse is iron is doing ok :( was really looking forward to seeing him in the Haskell and thought it would be right up his alley.

Major disappointment for me not to root home Classic Empire here. Love attending the morning workouts Haskell week. Hope he gets back on track ASAP

I know I said it before the Preakness so I don't have much ground to stand on, but I seriously think Classic Empire needs a long break away from the track. He's shown more red flags in the past six months than most horses do in an entire career.

I don't think you're the only one thinking that. :?
I know it's only July, and he may prove us wrong by showing his best before the year is out, but...
I remember how much good the long layoff did California Chrome, reinvigorating him so well he had another HOTY season.

The potential Haskell field consists of Belmont runner-up, Wood Memorial winner and Jersey-bred Irish War Cry; unbeaten Timeline, who won the Grade 3 Pegasus at Monmouth on June 18; Dwyer Stakes winner Practical Joke; Kentucky Derby third-place finisher Battle of Midway; Grade 3 Matt winner McCraken; Girvin, who won the Grade II Louisiana Derby earlier this year and was the runner-up by a nose in the Grade 3 Ohio Derby on June 24; Hence, who won the Grade 3 Iowa Derby on July 7 and the Grade 3 Sunland Derby earlier this year and Impressive Edge, third in the Iowa Derby.

That's an excellent field for the Haskell. Brown must be feeling really good about Practical Joke to run him there.

Do we know who else is going to challenge the big two in the Jim Dandy?

EDIT: Answering my own question... looks like maybe Lee and Patch.
