The 2011 campaign for Caracortado will be purely North American and
focus on the top grass races leading to the Breeders’ Cup Mile.
Trainer, breeder, and co-owner Mike Machowsky said Tuesday that the
spring schedule for Caracortado will include the Grade 2 Arcadia
Handicap at Santa Anita on April 9, Grade 1 Woodford Reserve at
Churchill Downs on May 7, and Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile at Hollywood Park
on July 2.
Machowsky had considered an international campaign for Caracortado, who was not originally nominated to the Breeders’ Cup.
“The breeder was too cheap to pay the $500,” Machowsky said, poking fun at himself.
