Wicked Strong, V. E. Day square off again in Jockey Club Gold Cup


ELMONT, N.Y. – Jimmy Jerkens admitted to riding “a roller coaster of emotions” after his horses, V. E. Day and Wicked Strong, finished a nose apart when first and second in last month’s $1.25 million Travers Stakes at Saratoga. It’s a ride the 55-year-old trainer wants to experience again Saturday at Belmont Park, where V. E. Day and Wicked Strong meet again in the $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup.
