John Henry a Possibility for Bourbon Bay

Neil Drysdale says the inaugural John Henry Turf Championship, formerly the Clement Hirsch, is under consideration for multiple stakes-winning turf marathoner Bourbon Bay on Sept. 30.

The Grade II race at 1 ¼ miles could prove a useful steppingstone to the $3 million BC Turf at 1 ½ miles on Nov. 3.

The Hall of Fame trainer shipped in for his races at the recent Del Mar meet, opting to condition his string at his Betfair Hollywood Park headquarters in Inglewood.

Wesley Ward, a fixture on the Southern California circuit before becoming a world traveler three years ago, could run Judy the Beauty in the Foxwoods Gallant Bloom Handicap at Belmont Park on Saturday before moving on the to $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint on Nov. 2. 

Gypsy Robin, another F&M Sprint candidate trained by Ward, is expected to make her next start in the $200,000 Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes at Keeneland on Oct. 6
