LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense and Preakness champion Curlin were back at work at Churchill Downs yesterday, and the two colts could face off again later this summer.
Both 3-year-olds completed five furlong workouts at the track. It was Curlin's first major work since finishing a head behind Rags to Riches in the Belmont. Trainer Steve Asmussen said Curlin looked great and hasn't lost any sharpness during his layoff.
Street Sense's next start likely will be in the Jim Dandy at Saratoga on July 29th, although trainer Carl Nafzger hasn't ruled out the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on August fifth. If he heads to the Haskell, he'll get a rematch with Curlin, who finished third behind Street Sense and Hard Spun in the Derby.
