Jackson Bend Could Breeze Monday

Multiple Grade 1 winner Jackson Bend, who was involved in a collision with another horse, Little Nick, on Saturday, galloped Thursday morning and could breeze Monday, Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito said.

 

“Jackson went to the track this morning and galloped,” Zito said. “Ultrasound, blood, X-rays, he passed all of it. I’m going to try [and work him] Monday. We’ll just go around 7:30 right here [at Oklahoma]. If not, then you know, we just gotta wait.”

 

The 5-year-old son of Hear No Evil was training toward a title defense in the Grade 1, $500,000 Forego on September 1, but those plans have been up in the air since the incident, though neither Jackson Bend nor Little Nick sustained any injuries as a result. Little Nick ran back Wednesday, finishing fourth in a turf claiming event.
