Jaxon Traveler has shipped to Toronto for an interesting challenge north of the border on Sunday in the $125,000 Woodstock Stakes for 3-year-old sprinters on Woodbine’s synthetic Tapeta track. Maryland’s reigning juvenile champion, Jaxon Traveler is 4-for-6 lifetime but he has never raced on anything but dirt.
Trained by Steve Asmussen, Jaxon Traveler did work well on the all-weather track at the OBS sale last June.
The bay colt will take on two spring stakes winners for Wesley Ward: Outadore, who captured the Animal Kingdom Stakes on the Tapeta track at Turfway, and Chasing Artie, winner of the Palisades Turf Sprint after missing the break at Keeneland.
