Jay Em Ess Stable’s Happy Medium, a winner of 3-of-4 starts, recorded his first breeze since a 6 1/2-furlong allowance optional claiming victory on December 18, going an easy half-mile Sunday in 51.22 seconds over the Belmont training track.
The 4-year-old son of Runhappy has won his last three starts by a combined 21 1/4-lengths. Following a 9 1/4-length maiden score over two next-out winners in September at Belmont, he defeated winners at the Big A in November before recording a career-best 104 Beyer in a 6 1/2-furlong allowance optional claimer on December 18.
Nevin said no definitive plans have been made for Happy Medium’s next start.
“He worked well this morning. It was just an easy breeze, which was what I wanted,” Nevin said.
Nevin said My Boy Tate was in good order following Saturday’s Say Florida Sandy at Aqueduct, where he crossed the wire first before being disqualified to fourth for interference in the stretch drive.
Trained, bred and co-owned by Nevin with Little Red Feather Racing, the six-time stakes-winning New York-bred son of Boys At Tosconova captured the 2018 Say Florida Sandy in his first stakes triumph and has banked $723,788 through a career of 30-11-8-2.
My Boy Tate won the six-furlong Hollie Hughes in February and one-mile Haynesfield in March last year at the Big A in a productive campaign that also included a win in the Leon Reed Memorial in October at Finger Lakes.
Nevin said she had no plans yet for My Boy Tate.
“He came out of it well,” Nevin said. “He’s tough as nails. He goes out and puts out an effort each and every time.”
