Union Rags Breezes at Keeneland

Chadds Ford Stable’s Union Rags breezed a half-mile in :47 2/5 at Keeneland today, galloping out 5/8s in a minute. Under regular morning rider Peter Brette, the Michael Matz colt looked good over the Polytrack in what is expected to be his penultimate pre-Kentucky Derby breeze.

  1. Wow, the shot with him and Messaging is amazing! I wonder if Messaging can give him any tips about other horses he's ponied over the years. ;)

  2. Thanks, Michele. Hard to mess up a shot of the gorgeous Union Rags!

    Yes, Messaging has known a good horse or two in his day.
