Motion Gets Team Valor Horses

Team Valor announced late Thursday that it was immediately transferring all of its horses, including Pluck, the winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf on Saturday, to trainer Graham Motion.


All the horses will be based with Motion at the Fair Hill training center in Maryland. Team Valor is buying a 40-stall barn at Fair Hill in which to house the runners, according to a press release from Team Valor.


Pluck had been trained by Todd Pletcher. According to the press release, Pluck is "under serious consideration" for the Irish 2000 Guineas next spring.

i love turf racing and really hope they do keep Pluck off the trail. His perfomance to me was one of the best of BC weekend. Missing the ill fated horse, not a great break, and circling the entire field to blow them away. A lot to look forward to.
It would be fun to see Pluck head to Ireland and take home the 2000 Guineas.
It seems like this might keep Pluck on the turf and not in KY Derby consideration. Too bad. I really liked his finishing run in the BC Juvinile Turf. I would like to see Motion try him out on the dirt again soon before committing him to the turf.
