After tasting defeat for the first time when a gallant stretch rally ended a head short, Jaxon Traveler gets a chance to make amends Saturday in the $200,000 Bachelor Stakes at Oaklawn Park
This will be a rubber match for Jaxon Traveler and Sir Wellington, who held on to win the Gazebo Stakes on March 20 at Oaklawn. Jaxon Traveler beat Sir Wellington by 4 lengths in an allowance at Laurel last fall.
An OBS 2yo sale purchase in 2020, Jaxon Traveler won all three of his races as a juvenile and made his 3yo debut in the Gazebo for trainer Steve Asmussen. Francisco Arrieta has the mount again in the six-furlong Bachelor.
