Texas Red ready as he can be


ELMONT, N.Y. – Both before and after Texas Red won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile by an eye-catching 6 1/2 lengths last November, trainer Keith Desormeaux always felt the best was in front of the son of Afleet Alex. Though he missed virtually all of the first half of his 3-year-old season, perhaps Texas Red can finally start to prove his trainer’s theory correct when he begins the second half of the year in Saturday’s Grade 2, $500,000 Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park.
