Multiple graded stakes winners Creator and Gun Runner worked together Monday morning at Saratoga, going five furlongs in a “solid” 1:00.60 as they continue preparations for the G1 Travers Stakes.

David Grening of the Daily Racing Form reported that the duo ticked off fractions of 12.90, 24.92 and 36.43 for three furlongs. They completed the last quarter in 24.17 and galloped out six furlongs in 1:13.21.

“They were awfully nice and smooth,” trainer Steve Asmussen said afterward. “I loved Creator’s energy away from the pole. Gun Runner’s always been a great work horse, but I definitely think Creator is sharper since the Jim Dandy. They both went beautifully.”
