Todd Pletcher Gets Bridgetown

Eugene Melnyk has transferred a string of five horses at Churchill Downs from Ken McPeek to Todd Pletcher, most notably Bridgetown, the fourth-place finisher in the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint last weekend.

Bridgetown ran a big race at nearly 14-1 in the BC Turf Sprint when he moved strongly to challenge the race-long front-runner, Central City, in midstretch, only to fade in the final stages to finish 2 3/4 lengths behind the victorious Chamberlain Bridge.

Bridgetown, a 3-year-old by Speightstown, was the runner-up in the 2009 BC Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita and had won two minor turf-sprint stakes this year.

"When the horse came to us last year, I don't think he was particularly well regarded, so I'm proud of what we did with him," said McPeek. "I'm fine with the decision by Mr. Melnyk. I'm in the service business, and these things happen. We'll keep grinding." Read More
