LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 5, 2017) – A lot has happened to PJG Stable’s Favorite Tale since he finished third behind Runhappy in the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) at Keeneland and it hasn’t all been good.

“We have taken our time with him, but I think he is fitter than he has ever been,” said Paul Conaway, the man behind PJG Stable. “One of the reasons we came here (for Friday’s Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix-G2) is he likes this track and it’s a Win and You’re In race for the Breeders’ Cup.”

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.”
