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.
