Jay Em Ess Stable’s Worldly and Golden Goose Enterprises’ Citrus Kid, fifth and seventh respectively in last Saturday’s Grade III Lecomte Stakes as the first leg of Fair Grounds’ sophomore series leading to the Grade II $750,000 Louisiana Derby March 27, will not participate in the Grade III $300,000 Risen Star Stakes – next leg of that 3-year-old triple scheduled for Feb. 20.

 

“We’re going to give (Worldly) a little break,” said Galen Pruitt, trainer Paul McGee’s assistant. “We’re going to give him about a month and a half off.”

 

Meanwhile, Citrus Kid arrived back at South Florida’s Palm Meadows training center Monday morning, reported trainer John Terranova II.

 

“He (Citrus Kid) kind of lost it in the paddock (before the Lecomte) the other day,” said Terranova, “and then he got antsy in the post parade. We’re going to give him some time to regroup before we run him again. He still needs to grow up a little bit.”
