Boys At Tosconova is expected to resume training on Saturday.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Boys At Tosconova, last year’s Grade 1 Hopeful winner, arrived at trainer Richard Dutrow Jr.’s Aqueduct barn Friday morning and was expected to go back in training Saturday, exactly one year after he won a maiden race at Belmont by 12 lengths.

Boys At Tosconova has not raced since finishing second to Uncle Mo in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs. Boys At Tosconova was gearing up for a 3-year-old debut in January at Gulfstream Park when Dutrow stopped on him because he didn’t think the horse was moving properly.

“The injury did not require surgery, just time and good behavior,” said Samantha Siegel, who along with her father Mace head up Jay Em Ess Stable, which owns controlling interest in Boys At Tosconova. “We caught something at the start, which could have been a disaster.”

Boys At Tosconova will jog for the month of July before galloping in August. Siegel said there is no timetable for his return.

“Nothing is planned, we’ll take it as it comes,” Siegel said. “Keep him happy, get him fit, and look for a spot.”

Meanwhile, Siegel said Rail Trip, the multiple graded stakes winner who finished second to Friend or Foe in an overnight stakes here June 5, is on schedule for the Grade 1 Whitney at Saratoga on Aug. 6. Rail Trip worked six furlongs in 1:15.28 on Friday at Aqueduct.
