Ken McPeek will soon become a
year-round fixture in New York , as the
Lexington, Ky.-based trainer will be sending a string of 20 horses to
Park for the fall meet, which opens
“We’re excited,” said McPeek.
“The purses in Kentucky in the fall are modest,
and I’ve got a considerable number of
New York owners. I’ve come in before, but
especially with the VLT money coming in, I intend on bringing 20 to
Belmont with the overflow here at
Saratoga , and then keeping
the horses there for the winter at Aqueduct.”
Among the horses McPeek plans to
bring to New
York are the Grade 2 Lake Placid-bound Kathmanblu and multiple graded-stakes
winner Noble’s Promise.
