McPeek Sending String to Belmont

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 Belmont Park for the fall meet, which opens September 10.

 

“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.
