Breeders' Futurity Possible for Kendall's Boy

Tom Amoss 1

JerryNamy’s Kendall’s Boy had the misfortune of running into what was likely the most ballyhooed juvenile at Saratoga in August when he chased Havana, trained by Todd Pletcher.

Off that runner-up finish, Kendall’s Boy delivered as the 1-5 favorite when he broke his maiden three weeks later at Churchill Downs, winning by 5 1/4 lengths.

Nominated to Saturday’s Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (G1), Kendall’s Boy got a taste of Keeneland’s Polytrack surface Monday morning, working five furlongs in company in 1:00.80. Fractions for the work were :13.20, :25.60, :37.60 with gallop-out times of 1:13.20 for six furlongs and 1:27.60 for seven-eighths.

“He ran a good race in his debut,” trainer Tom Amoss said, hedging on a possible run here Saturday. “I think I may be throwing a lot at him too fast. He will be an entry-day decision (for the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity).”

Also working Monday morning for Amoss was Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence’s Sum of the Parts, who covered a half-mile in :51.40 under jockey Leandro Goncalves.

Amoss said it is possible that Sum of the Parts could come back Friday to defend his title in the Stoll Ogden Keenon Phoenix (G3). The most recent horse to win the Phoenix in consecutive years was Zuppardo’s Prince (1980-81).
