The oft-injured Winslow Homer, whose career has been punctuated by
promising efforts and then lengthy absences, is on the sidelines again
and will miss next week’s Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs, trainer
Larry Jones said Friday morning.
“We sent him over to Rood and Riddle in Lexington, and their theory
was that we should back off because of his suspensories,” Jones said.
“So we’re going to pass the Alysheba.”
Jones took over as Winslow Homer’s trainer this year and raced him at
Oaklawn Park earlier this year. Winslow Homer previously had been
trained by Tony Dutrow.
