Cox’s Likely Champion Essential Quality Works In Company With G2-Winning Filly Travel Column

Trainer Brad Cox sent out Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Essential Quality for a workout in company with G2 Golden Rod winning-filly Travel Column on Sunday at the Fair Grounds, the pair covering five furlongs in 1:01 2/5.

The Godolphin-owned son of Tapit has breezed five times since his victory at Keeneland on Nov. 6. Likely to be named Champion 2-Year-Old of 2020, Essential Quality does not have an official target on the Road to the Kentucky Derby for his first start of 2021, reports the Daily Racing Form. With stablemate Mandaloun, third in the Lecomte last weekend, pointing to the Fair Grounds’ Feb. 13 Risen Star, however, Essential Quality could be aimed at the Feb. 15 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park instead.

Meanwhile, the filly Travel Column (Frosted) appears poised to stay at the Fair Grounds for the Feb. 13 Rachel Alexandra Stakes, since stablemate Sun Path will skip the next round of preps after finishing fourth in the Silverbulletday over the weekend.
