CHURCHILL DOWNS BARN NOTES - NOV. 22, 2012


FRAC DADDY, JAVA’S WAR HEAD BIG SATURDAY FOR McPEEK BARN – Saturday’s “Stars of Tomorrow II” program will be a busy day for trainer Ken McPeek, who has 14 2-year-olds entered on the card, including Frac Daddy and Java’s War in the Grade II, $150,000-added Kentucky Jockey Club.

“It’s just timing,” said McPeek, who entered Thursday with 10 wins at the meet and ranked second in the Fall Meet trainer standings behind Al Stall Jr. We tend to try to bring them around a little later in the year and we tend to run a lot on this day every year. I think it’s a really great day of racing.”
