Could Todd Be Wavering on Rags to The Travers?

Interesting quotes from the Toddster after Rags to Riches’ 1:00.50 four furlong workout on Sunday:

Though improbable, Pletcher said he has not completely ruled out the Travers, which would mean facing males again.

"Completely? No, but it's extremely unlikely," Pletcher said. “I didn't work her this morning with the idea that this was a work for the Travers. If something crazy happens and there's two or three defections all of a sudden, she is nominated.

“She could be ready to run in it,” Pletcher continued. “I don't know that she's ready to run against Street Sense and the top horse or two, but she might be ready for the rest of them. But, like I've said all along, only if it was the best thing for the filly.”

Come on Todd—just do it! Let the girl run, and kick Street Sense's butt :)

Why not, she'd only really have to beat Street Sense, the rest of the field is not even B team, it's C team.
