We Miss Artie Well After Breeders' Futurity

Byron Hughes, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher, said Ken and Sarah Ramsey We Miss Artie came out of his victory in the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (G1) very well and that the colt will remain at Keeneland for the near future. The victory earned We Miss Artie a berth in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) on Nov. 2, but Hughes said no decision has been made as to whether We Miss Artie would run in the Juvenile or the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) on Nov. 1.

Regarding other starters in the race, trainer Ken McPeek said a decision would be made in the next few days regarding a possible Breeders’ Cup run by Shortleaf Stable’s Arctic Slope, who closed from last to finish third.

“Anytime you can run third in a race like that you have to be happy,” said McPeek, noting that Arctic Slope returned to Churchill Downs after the race.

Trainer Mark Casse said Conquest Stables’ Conquest Titan, the fifth-place finisher in the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity as the third choice, came out of the race fine and returned to Churchill Downs, where he will be pointed to the $175,000-added Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) at 1 1/16 miles on Nov. 30.
