Will Uncaptured Bounce Back in Iroquois?

John Oxley’s Uncaptured will seek to bounce back from a fifth-place finish in the Grey (GIII) in Sunday’s Iroquois (GIII) and trainer Mark Casse is hopeful it will be a step in the right direction on the Road to Kentucky Derby 139.

 

“If he takes to the dirt, and I don’t know why he wouldn’t, then he’ll be tough,” Casse said. “If he runs well then we’ll probably run him in the Kentucky Jockey Club (GII at Churchill Downs on Nov. 24) and if he doesn’t run well we’ll probably give him a break. We’re still hoping he’s a Derby horse and Sunday is the first step.”

 

Casse also hopes Uncaptured will have a less-eventful trip than he had in the Grey.

 

“(Jockey) Patrick (Husbands) said he was starting to fight, but when the winner (River Seven) came out (in the stretch) he had to snatch him up. He was beaten four lengths and if he wasn’t checked, worst case scenario, he’s probably second by a neck.”

 

Uncaptured, 3-1 co-second choice on the morning line, will break from post eight under Miguel Mena.
