Joha Tries Dirt in Kentucky Jockey Club

Bluegrass Equine Bloodstock LLC’s Joha, winner of the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (GI) on the Polytrack at Keeneland prior to finishing eighth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (GI), will make his dirt debut in Saturday’s Kentucky Jockey Club (GII) at Churchill Downs.

Much of the buzz around the Kentucky Jockey Club has revolved around Iroquois (GIII) winner Uncaptured and impressive maiden winner Frac Daddy while Joha, the lone Grade I winner in the field of 13, could be overlooked for his inexperience on dirt.

“He’s trying to do something against a solid field that he’s never done before,” trainer Mike Maker said. “He’s trained well on it, but a lot of them train well on it and then don’t take to it (in a race). Looking to next year, you gotta try it.”

Winner of the Colin at Woodbine and runner-up to Balance the Books in the With Anticipation (GII) on the turf at Saratoga, Joha will break from post 10 and be ridden by Joe Rocco Jr.
