Graded stakes winner Rogue Romance, who hasn’t raced since finishing
third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, will be shipping from Gulfstream
Park to the Fair Grounds to run in the Risen Star on Feb. 19, trainer
Ken McPeek said Saturday from Florida.
The Risen Star is the final stakes prep for the Louisiana Derby.
McPeek said he’ll also be sending graded-stakes-winning filly
Kathmanblu from Gulfstream to run that day in the Rachel Alexandra, the
final stakes prep for the Fair Grounds Oaks.
Rogue Romance, who has won two of four starts, scored a Grade III victory in the Bourbon Stakes last year on turf at Keeneland.
