Frac Daddy Might Run in Holy Bull Stakes

31 January 2009: Trainer Ken McPeek at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida.

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. 26.

"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 seconds.

“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 Cohen.

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.

Anytime, rafi, anytime!
Thx for the info.
That's what breen said. He just wanted to add another run in. He is (as long as sound) a definite in those other two.
Are you sure?
Even if he goes in this one, he'll go in the FOY too. And then the FL Derby.
To be honest I really think Breen should wait for the FOY. THe Holy Bull is so, so strong. He might not even get points in that race, who knows. I'd rather see Bern in the FOY.
*Am I too much of an enthusiast.
I cannot wait! Well, I guess I can... but it's hard! I'll be depressed if Bern doesn't show... I am always that way. I am I too much of an enthusiast? lol
OMG, wow. The Holy Bull might be very salty..... Here are possible/probables: Shanghai Bobby, Bern Identity. Purple Egg, and Frac Daddy.... Looks like a tough race to me :) Should be really fun!
