Empire Builder to Set Course for Virginia
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (May 28, 2012) – Sharing his name with flagship route of the now defunct Great Northern Railway, Luis Duco Stables, Inc.’s Empire Builder, winner of Saturday’s off-the-turf running of the $55,000 Mambo Meister Stakes at Calder Casino & Race Course, is scheduled to make a mid-summer voyage to Virginia for the $600,000 Virginia Derby at Colonial Downs on July 21.
“That’s the race we’re going to try and make, the one at Colonial in July;” Duco said. “I would love to run him down here one more time before then, but we’ll have to see if a race for him comes up.”
