Quotes - $175,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3)

Tom Amoss (winning trainer of Sum of the Parts)

“I was really pleased that we made the lead as easy as we did. Julien’s a great rider here at Keeneland, handled the front end well with this horse. He knows this horse well. We got beat at Belmont with this horse about 3 ½ weeks ago (in the Groovy on September 13, in which he was second), but it probably was a blessing. It was his first start since June. I think it got him ready for this race.”

 

On the colt’s next start, possibly the Breeders’ Cup Xpressbet Sprint (G1) on

Prestigious Shadwell Turf Mile features higher purse, unique trophy

Winning a Grade 1 stakes race at a track like Keeneland is a special accomplishment for any owner. But the Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) on October 6 offers two other enticing elements.

First, the purse has been raised to $750,000 – highest of any race on the Fall Stars Weekend lineup and equal to the spring meet’s signature event, the Toyota Blue Grass (G1). And beyond the added cash is a unique keepsake to mark the achievement for the winning owner.
