Fort Larned Gets Back to Work at Gulfstream Park

FORT LARNED, ridden by Brian Hernandez Jr. and trained by Ian Wilkes, wins the Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California on November 3, 2012.

Janis Whitham’s 5-year-old Kentucky homebred Fort Larned breezed a half-mile in 48 2/5 Friday morning at Gulfstream Park in his first recorded workout since his stunning half-length victory over Mucho Macho Man in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

A son of E Dubai, Fort Larned is one of three finalists for 2012 Eclipse Awards as Older Male and Horse of the Year to be announced in ceremonies Saturday night at Gulfstream Park.

Trainer Ian Wilkes has indicated that plans call for Fort Larned to launch his 2013 season in the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) at one mile on Sat., Mar. 9.
