Trainer Ken McPeek has added Frac Daddy to the list of prospective
candidates for the $400,000 Holy Bull (G3) at Gulfstream Park on Jan.
"I’m leaning towards maybe running him in the Holy Bull,” said
McPeek, who had originally targeted the Fountain of Youth (G2) at
Gulfstream on Feb. 23 as his 3-year-old’s stakes debut. “We don’t have to decide today. We’ll just see how he does for the next week or two.”
Frac Daddy worked five furlongs in company with 2012 Travers Stakes
winner Golden Ticket at Gulfstream on Saturday morning. The 3-year-old
son of Scat Daddy and his 4-year-old stablemate were timed in 59 4/5
“It was a good work, excellent. They pretty much worked together.
He (Frac Daddy) got a little tired the last part of it, but we’re
getting him ready,” said McPeek, whose colt was ridden by jockey David
Frac Daddy concluded his 2-year-old campaign with a close
second-place finish in the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) at Churchill Downs
on Nov. 24. The Kentucky-bred colt debuted with a second-place finish on
turf at Belmont in October before breaking his maiden by nearly 10
lengths at Churchill on Nov. 3.
“I’ll either run him in an allowance or the stake (on Jan. 26). I can take that up to a few days before,” McPeek said.
