MULTIPLE GRADE 1 WINNER JACKSON BEND RETIRED


ELMONT, N.Y. – Jackson Bend, winner of the 2011 Grade 1 Forego at Saratoga Race Course and the 2012 Grade 1 Carter Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack, has been retired from racing, breeder and co-owner Fred Brei said today.

The diminutive son of Hear No Evil has been turned out since early September at Brei’s farm in Reddick, Fla., where he was sent following a last-place finish in this year’s Forego. Three weeks before the race, Jackson Bend was involved in a collision with another horse on the Oklahoma training track at Saratoga, and although physically unharmed, Brei felt the 5-year-old was slow to recuperate mentally from the incident.
