Rogue Romance, Kathmanblu Returning to FG

Trainer Ken McPeek, who saddled Five D Thoroughbreds and Wind River Stables’ Kathmanblu to win Fair Grounds’ Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes Feb. 19 and Catesby Clay’s Rogue Romance to run third in the Grade II Risen Star Stakes on the same day, indicated Sunday morning that both the filly and the colt would be returning to New Orleans to run back in the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks and the Grade II Louisiana Derby, respectively, on March 26.

 

“Everything is fine with both of them,” McPeek said Sunday morning while speaking over the phone from South Florida, “and we’re planning on coming back with both of them.”

 

Prior to the Rachel Alexandra, Kathmanblu had won Gulfstream’s $100,000 Sweetest Chant Stakes Jan. 22 in her 2011 debut, but Rogue Romance had not raced since finishing third in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs.

 

Nine years ago, McPeek saddled Select Stable’s Take Charge Lady to win the Fair Grounds Oaks and that same ownership’s Repent to capture the Louisiana Derby.

 

With the Louisiana Derby having its purse boosted to $1 million for its 98th running in less than five weeks, it will become the richest Thoroughbred race ever run in New Orleans.
