King Congie out of Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes


FLORENCE, Ky., Mar. 26, 2011 - King Congie has been scratched from today's Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes (G3) at Turfway Park. Terry Finley, president of owner West Point Thoroughbreds, said the colt strained a hind muscle during a gallop at Turfway yesterday morning. "He didn't cool out well," said Finley. "He's about 90 percent, but not 100 percent. We plan to come back in the Blue Grass or Lexington," noting upcoming stakes at Keeneland, Grade 1 and Grade 3 respectively.

"He still seems a little off in that left hind but he is much improved this morning," said trainer Tom Albertrani, "so he must have just tweaked something. But we decided to scratch to be cautious."


Birdie Beats Par, slated to run in the Hansel Stakes on the Spiral undercard, also was scratched this morning. The sprinter had drawn the 12 post and trainer Tom Amoss decided to scratch and aim for a race at Keeneland.
