Breeders’ Cup Kentucky update

Juvenile Kentucky horses dominate Juvenile as Classic Empire nips Not This Time

Romans: ‘I think we proved that you can run a good horse at Ellis Park’

By Jennie Rees

ARCADIA, Calif. — Based on Saturday’s $2 million Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, the road to the Kentucky Derby so far is going through, well, Kentucky.

John Oxley’s Classic Empire held off favored Albaugh Family Stable’s Not This Time by a neck at Santa Anita Park to remain unbeaten in the four races he finished, which spans maiden and Grade 3 Bashford Manor wins at Churchill Downs and Keeneland’s Grade 1 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity. His only defeat came in Saratoga’s Hopeful, when Classic Empire wheeled at the start and dumped his rider. Julien Leparoux, Keeneland’s fall-meet champ who missed the Hopeful with a broken wrist, now is 4 for 4 on the Pioneerof the Nile colt.

Meanwhile, Not This Time won an Ellis Park maiden race by 10 lengths and Churchill Downs’ Grade 3 Iroquois by 8 3/4, with trainer Dale Romans opting to skip the Breeders’ Futurity to train up to the Juvenile.

Breeders’ Cup Kentucky update

Maker hoping growing claim to fame continues with Da Big Hoss, Al’s Gal

‘Get a good sound horse, put her in the right spot, get the right jockey on her and Mike is very lethal’

ARCADIA, Calif. (Friday, Nov. 4, 2016) — Mike Maker wouldn’t mind having a shedrow full of racehorses that were pricey yearling purchases. But while the Kentucky-based trainer does buy young horses at the sales, much of his clientele is more likely to spend $50,000 to claim a horse than to buy a baby.

Bad fall in race doesn’t stop Lull
Colebrook glad he came for Sprint

ARCADIA, Calif. — There might be a faster horse than Lull in Friday’s $1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita Park. But it’s hard to imagine there’s a 2-year-old filly in the race possessing more heart.

After winning her debut by three lengths at Belmont Park, Lull clipped heels rounding out of the turn and fell hard in Saratoga’s $100,000 Bolton Landing Stakes. She got up, ran off before being collared by the outrider, then was walked back to trainer Christophe Clement’s barn. Sixteen days later, Lull shipped from upstate New York to Kentucky Downs to capture the $350,000 Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies over the promising Caroline Test.
