Inflation Target to be stretched out in an allowance test at Aqueduct
The lightly raced 3-year-old colt, Inflation Target, broke his maiden at second asking this year, and now the colt is ready to get stretched out in distance to 1 mile and 70 yards in his next race which happens to be an allowance/optional claimer at Aqueduct
on 7 March, 2012, against 8 other 3-year-old males.
The Kentucky bred son of Tapit is trained by Richard Violette Jr. The colt has raced twice in his career, and both his races were at Aqueduct, and both times he was making an attempt to break his maiden.
His first attempt was over a distance of 6 furlongs on 1 January, 2012, but he missed his mark then, as he finished on the money in third to winner, Beggarthyneighbor, who covered the six furlong distance in 1 minute and 11.62 seconds.
He was ridden by Alan Garcia over the venue’s dirt course, but Violette opted for a new jockey for Inflation Target’s second attempt at the maiden’s, and chose David Cohen to ride the colt.
The jockey coupled with Inflation Target proved to be a winning combination, as David Cohen guided home Inflation Target in the six furlong maiden race at Aqueduct’s dirt course on 4 February, 2012, as Inflation Target defeated Wild Target in second and
Luckysdream in third, while covering the six furlong distance in 1 minute and 10.82 seconds.
It was a big win for the Klaravich Stables owned Inflation Target, as he dumped the field by a margin of 1 ¾ lengths, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 87 in the process.
Conditioner Richard Violette is of the view that now Inflation Target has two sprints under his belt, the colt is ready to go two turns now, in fact the trainer thinks he was always ready to go two turns.
 The trainer further went on to reveal that he was tempted to go all out with Inflation Target in his first attempt, but found it essential to test him over shorter distances instead.
Inflation Target’s main worry in the 7 March allowance test would be Chad Brown trained, Street Life, who is also coming off a maiden special weight win, but over a distance of 1 mile and 70 yards at second attempt.
