Mabou Gearing Up for Grand National

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 Belmont 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.”
