Kensei Breaks Down at Belmont

Kensei, winner of Saratoga’s Grade 2 Jim Dandy in 2009, was euthanized on Tuesday after breaking down during a gallop over the Belmont Park training track.

Owned by Stonestreet Stables and trained by Steve Asmussen, the 5-year-old son of Mr. Greeley suffered a broken right front cannon bone, and was euthanized by a private veterinarian.


Kensei earned $751,364 over the course of his career, with a record of 5 wins, 4 seconds, and 2 thirds from 18 starts. Among his victories were the 2009 Grade 2 Dwyer at Belmont, the Jim Dandy, and the 2011 Grade 3 Salvator Mile at Monmouth Park.
