McPeek's Pair Work for Ky Jockey Club Stakes

31 January 2009: Trainer Ken McPeek at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Florida.

Magic City Thoroughbred PartnersFrac Daddy and Charles Fipke’s Java’s War both recorded workouts at Churchill Downs for trainer Ken McPeek on Saturday in preparation for next Saturday’s $150,000-added Kentucky Jockey Club (GII).

 

Frac Daddy, who broke his maiden at Churchill Downs by 9 ¾ lengths on Nov. 3, breezed five furlongs in 1:00.20, the fastest of 51 at the distance, while working in company with Taken by the Storm, who was credited with a five-furlong time of 1:01.20.

 

Following the work, McPeek confirmed Frac Daddy would make his next start in the Kentucky Jockey Club. He also was being considered for the Remsen (GII) at Aqueduct.

 

“(Frac Daddy) did incredible. He did it easy. He’s a very talented horse,” McPeek said.

 

Java’s War, winner of the Sunday Silence at Louisiana Downs and most recently third behind Joha in the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (GI) at Keeneland, breezed five furlongs in 1:01.40 while working in company with another McPeek trainee.

 

“He’s been doing great (since the Breeders’ Futurity),” McPeek said. “He’s been training super.”
