Kentucky Jockey Club Trio Headed South

4 Uncaptured and Miguel Mena win the 86th running of the Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill Downs. November 24, 2012.
In Saturday’s 86th running of the Kentucky Jockey Club (GII), Uncaptured defeated Frac Daddy by a neck after a thrilling stretch run and both of those precocious 2-year-olds and third-place finisher Dewey Square were in good order Sunday morning.

“He came out great, thank goodness, other than a few cuts on his legs that I think he got at the start, where he got banged around pretty good,” Uncaptured’s trainer Mark Casse said. “He’s going to go to Palm Meadows and get a little bit of a break there. I’ll sit down with Mr. (John) Oxley (owner) and we’ll map out probably three races to get him to the Kentucky Derby. I just don’t know which three they’ll be.”

Ken McPeek’s assistant trainer Phil Bauer reported Magic City Thoroughbred Partners’ Frac Daddy came out of the race well and would soon make his way to south Florida. Bauer said Hitechnoweenie, winner of Saturday’s fifth race, would likely join Frac Daddy in Florida, while Pure Fun, 9 ¼-length winner of the second race, could go to Florida or Oaklawn Park.

Siena Farms LLC’s Dewey Square, who was 1 ¼ lengths behind Frac Daddy in third, came out of the Kentucky Jockey Club in fine form, according to Dale Romans’ assistant trainer Baldemar Bahena. He is scheduled to make his way to Florida soon and will be stabled at Palm Meadows or Gulfstream Park, where he will be joined by Gulfport, 2 ¾-length winner of Saturday’s 10th race.

Dewey Square, may be the Derby sleeper, if he stays sound. A son of the great Bernardini, with a great closing kick. A lot to like about this young colt. He should love the Derby distance.
Thank you, MM.

Hard to think of a two year old as game as Uncaptured.
For the last several years, two races before the derby has been the winning formula.
Uncaptured is as game as they get.
