Flat Out's Future Uncertain

Plans are undetermined for Flat Out, who on Saturday earned his third Grade 1 win and first at one mile when he took the Cigar Mile Handicap by 1 ¼ lengths over Private Zone.

 

"I don't know if he's going to be a racehorse or a stallion," said Hall of Famer Bill Mott, who trains Flat Out for Preston Stables. "We have to hear from the owners what they have in mind."

 

Flat Out, a two-time winner of the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational and Grade 2 Suburban Handicap, gave Mott his third win in the Cigar Mile. Mott first won the race, then called the NYRA Mile, in 1994 with Cigar. The race was renamed in honor of Cigar in 1997. Mott most recently won the Cigar Mile in 2011 with To Honor and Serve.

 

"[Flat Out] came back good," said Mott. "Looked just fine, and he ran a big race. It was a big day for Flat Out and us."
