Here's what's happening this week in horse racing!
Enable to Continue Racing in 2020
Her 2019 season may be over, but we will see more from ENABLE next year. Juddmonte has announced that the mare is done racing for the season and her 2020 campaign will be determined based solely on her health and well-being.
Bodexpress Breaks His Maiden
The runner-up in the Florida Derby (G1) officially broke his maiden this weekend at Gulfstream Park West under an easy hand ride and in gate-to-wire fashion. The colt had not raced since the May 18th Preakness Stakes, where reared in the gate, unseating John Velazquez. In his maiden race, he ran easy fractions of :22.79, :47.85 and 1:12.70 through six furlongs.
Code of Honor Works Ahead of Breeders' Cup
CODE OF HONOR went back to work, running a half-mile in :50.56 over a fast track at Belmont this weekend. This was his first serious breeze following the Jockey Club Gold Cup Stakes. Trainer McGaughey expects to see a strong work next week.
Secretariat Monument Revealed and Installed in Lexington
The past few days have been an exciting one for artist Jocelyn Russell as her larger than life monument of the great SECRETARIAT was completed and made the road trip from Norman, Oklahoma to Lexington, Kentucky making stops along the way. The bronze sculpture was officially unveiled October 12th at Keeneland as part of the 11th Secretariat Festival in Lexington. The monument was then moved and installed at its permanent location at Old Frankfort Pike and Alexandria Drive.
