Quote Of The Day: Curlin To Try Turf

“It’s a rare occurrence for a Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) champion to make the transition to turf, and we are looking forward to watching Curlin in his inaugural effort on grass. We thank Curlin’s majority owner, Jess Jackson’s Stonestreet Stable, and trainer Steve Asmussen for bringing Curlin to New York and for their foresight and expertise in managing this outstanding champion.”
New York Racing Association President Charles Hayward after Horse of the Year Curlin on Tuesday was cleared to contest the $500,000 Man o’ War Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park on Saturday.
