Jackson Bend, Ice Box Ready for Stakes Engagements

Jackson Bend and Ice Box worked Sunday morning at Saratoga Race Course as Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito prepares them for starts in the Grade 2, $200,000 Kelso Handicap and the Grade 1, $750,000 Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational, respectively.

 

Jackson Bend, a 4-year-old son of Hear No Evil, worked five furlongs in 1:00.80 over the Saratoga training track. He is coming off consecutive victories in seven-furlong Saratoga stakes races. Most recently, he was a very impressive winner of the Grade 1 Forego on August 3, defeating 2010 Grade 1 Cigar Mile winner Jersey Town by 3 ¼ lengths.

 

Owned by Robert LaPenta, Jackson Bend won five straight races as a juvenile, including four stakes, before going 12 straight without a victory. Among the expected horses he will face in the one mile Kelso are last year’s champion juvenile Uncle Mo and Jersey Town.

 

Ice Box, also owned by LaPenta, worked four furlongs over the Saratoga training track in a swift 46.97. The 2010 Florida Derby winner and Kentucky Derby runner-up will look to get back on track after a sixth-place finish in the Woodward at Saratoga.
