Uncle Chuck trained by Bob Baffert won’t make it easy for Tiz the Law in Saturday’s Travers Stakes. It’s a lightly raced 3 year old with all the talent to win the race, and Baffert has three wins in the Mid-Summer Derby. When they turn for home, Jockey Manny Franco might have to ask more from Tiz than in any of his other victories. Tiz will be challenged more than ever, but he will be up to that challenge. I fully expect to see Tiz the law in the winner’s circle for Sackatoga Stable and Managing Partner Jack Knowlton, but it won’t be easy.
