Mabou, who came off a $30,000 claim by
trainer David Jacobson to win the Grade 1 New York Turf Writers Cup at Saratoga
Race Course, continues to gallop at Aqueduct Racetrack as he prepares for his
next jumping engagement, the Grade 1, $250,000 Grand National at
Far Hills ,
N.J. on October 22.
“He came out of the race fine and
he’s doing very well here,” said Jacobson, who owns the 7-year-old Dynaformer
gelding with Drawing Away Stable.
Jacobson said he was hoping to
get a race into Mabou at
Park prior to the Grand National, which is
2 5/8 miles over national fences.
“Hopefully there will be a race
for him in late September or early October,” said Jacobson. “The only trouble
is, a 1 ½-mile race would be like a sprint for him.”
