Oaklawn Barn Notes - Friday, Feb. 20

Owner Harry Rosenblum Happy With Colt He Kept

Harry Rosenblum will have an eye on a horse running far south Saturday afternoon, then on a horse named Far Right Sunday afternoon. Rosenblum co-owns Far Right, who won the $150,000 Smarty Jones Stakes Jan. 19 and is the 5-2 program favorite for Sunday’s $300,000 Southwest Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn. Rosenblum also owned another promising 3-year-old prospect, War Story, before selling the gelding privately following his Nov. 1 career debut victory at Churchill Downs. Now with trainer Tom Amoss at Fair Grounds in New Orleans, War Story is scheduled to run in Saturday’s $400,000 Risen Star Stakes (G2).

$250,000 General George (G2) Quotes

Jockey Kendrick Carmouche (Misconnect): "My horse broke really well and I thought if I kept him close he would finish the last eighth of a mile and win. But I knew I had to keep him close.
