King Kreesa Breezes for Hirsch Turf Classic

Multiple stakes winner King Kreesa, most recently second to reigning Horse of the Year Wise Dan in the Grade 2 Fourstardave Handicap, breezed five furlongs on the training track in 1:01.51 Saturday morning in preparation for his second Grade 1 start, Saturday's $600,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational.

 

It was the second work since the Fourstardave for the 4-year-old New York-bred gelding, who developed an abscess in his foot following the race and missed 10 days of training, said trainer Jeremiah Englehart.

 

"Because he missed some time we were thinking about giving him another week and skipping the race," he said. "He was a little eager last week [four furlongs in 48.13] but today, Irad [Ortiz, Jr.] was really happy with him and said he handled everything fine."

 

Second in last year's Grade 1 Jamaica Handicap, King Kreesa is 2-1-2 in five starts this year including victories in the Kingston and the Grade 3 Poker. The 1 ½-mile Turf Classic will be his first start beyond 1 1/8 miles.
