Overanalyze Headed to Ky Jockey Club Stakes

Trainer Todd Pletcher said Wednesday that Repole Stable’s Overanalyze, a pre-entrant for Saturday’s $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot (GIII), is now being pointed to the Kentucky Jockey Club (GII) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 24 as part of the “Stars of Tomorrow II” program.

 

“We decided to stay at Churchill since he was already there and felt the extra week would be beneficial,” Pletcher said. “I also wanted to get a two-turn race at Churchill into him and see how he handled it.”

 

Pletcher is a two-time winner of the Kentucky Jockey Club. WinStar Farm LLC’s Super Saver won the race in 2009 and returned to Churchill Downs the following year to win the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (GI). Gemologist, also owned by WinStar Farm, won it in 2011 and returned in 2012 to finish 16th in the Derby. 

 

“It’s been a good race for us in the past,” Pletcher said. “Those two horses went on to win significant races afterward and we also had Any Given Saturday run second in it, so it’s been a good prep for us. We feel like it’s important to get a good two-turn race into the 2-year-olds before you winter and prepare for the spring.”

 

Pletcher said WinStar Farm LLC and Twin Creeks Racing Stable LLC’s Delhomme also is under consideration for the Kentucky Jockey Club. A bay son of Dixie Union, Delhomme broke his maiden at second asking at Belmont Park on Oct. 13.

 

“We’ll see how he breezes this weekend and assess the fields at Aqueduct for the Remsen (GII) and the Jockey Club at Churchill Downs and then make a decision.”
