Sum of the Parts Tired After Phoenix Repeat

Serving as an analyst on TVG’s telecast of Friday’s races at Keeneland, trainer Tom Amoss had no trouble selecting a horse for the Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3).

Sum of the Parts was a single,” Amoss said with a laugh of the colt who successfully defended his crown in the race with a gate-to-wire 1 ¼-length victory.

Sum of the Parts used the Phoenix last year as a springboard to the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) in which he finished fourth, beaten only three lengths by Trinniberg.

“He is tired this morning but in good shape,” Amoss said. “We have a full month (to the Breeders’ Cup) if we decide to go. It will be the owners’ (Klaravich Stables of Seth Klarman and William Lawrence) decision and they will probably make it early next week. My vote right now would be to go.”

For the time being, Sum of the Parts will remain at Keeneland where he has won all three of his starts.
