Morpheus, a 4-year-old half-brother to British superstar Frankel,
makes his North American debut here in Thursday’s eighth race, a
6½-furlong allowance optional claiming race on the main track. The son
of Oasis Dream (GB) is a homebred racing for Khaled Abdullah’s Juddmonte
Farms and is trained by Racing Hall of Famer Bill Mott.
Morpheus began his career in England and won three races in eight
starts. He was sent to Mott at the end of last year and most recently
has trained at Palm Meadows in Florida.
Frankel, considered one of the finest horses to race in Britain in
recent years, at 6 is in his first season at stud at Abdullah’s Banstead
Manor Farm in Newmarket, England.
