Jerkens has solid pair for Brooklyn Invitational


ELMONT, N.Y. – The Brooklyn Invitational over 1 1/2 miles on dirt was a handicap at 1 1/8 miles when trainer Jimmy Jerkens won it in 2003 with Iron Deputy, but the changes to the race should only enhance Jerkens’s chances when the $400,000 Brooklyn is run Saturday on the Belmont Stakes undercard.
