The Pressbox Show Saturday Buff Bradley Talks About The Player Running Clark Handicap This Friday

The Player will run Friday in The Clark Handicap $500,000 (G1) at Churchill Down. Trainer Buff Bradley takes time to share a candid description about this thoroughbred which brings so much life and character on and off the track.

I was able to sit just about last with her and follow a little cover for a little while down the backside. She’s one that likes to be on the outside. She’s a big filly [with a] huge stride, so there’s no sense in to keeping her bottled up inside. You just kind of get her out and get her momentum rolling, and it just seems like she’s improving every race. I think the more ground, the better for her, so I was happy she got the mile today, but I definitely think she’ll improve with distance.”
