Honor Code Works for Remsen

Lane's End and Dell Ridge Farms' Honor Code, most recently second in the Grade 1 Foxwoods Champagne Stakes, breezed an easy five furlongs in 1:03.34 this morning on Belmont Park's main track in preparation for his next engagement, the Grade 2 Remsen on November 30.

 

"He went very well and Shug [McGaughey] said he was happy with the way he did it," said assistant trainer Buzz Tenney of the A.P. Indy colt, who in his only other start was a 4 ½-length, last-to-first winner of a seven-furlong maiden race on August 31 at Saratoga Race Course. "He'll have one more breeze next weekend, and that will be it."

 

Tenney also reported that Imagining emerged from his first graded stakes win in Saturday's Grade 3 Red Smith Handicap in good order. A front-running winner of two of his three previous starts, the 5-year-old Giant's Causeway horse displayed a new dimension in coming from off the pace in the 1 3/8-mile race.

 

"That was really nice to see," said Tenney. "The other thing we were pleased with was how well he acted shipping over to Aqueduct from Belmont. It seems as if he's really maturing in a big way recently."

 

McGaughey said after the race that Imagining could have one more start this year in California; if not, he would wait to launch his 2014 campaign in Florida.
