Aqueduct: Jersey Town to return next year

Jersey Town finished sixth in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile and will make his next start over the winter, perhaps at Gulfstream

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Jersey Town, who upset last year’s Cigar Mile at odds of 34-1, was not entered in Saturday’s renewal and instead will be pointed to 2012 campaign.

Trainer Barclay Tagg said that Jersey Town had a hard race when he finished sixth in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, and with some inclement weather afterward, Jersey Town was not able to train as he would have liked.

Tagg said that he would ship Jersey Town to south Florida next week and most likely point him to the Gulfstream Park Sprint, a seven-furlong race on Feb. 18.
