During the Nov. 12 session of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, Mill Ridge will offer a group of racehorses from Juddmonte Farm, as well as a draft of racehorses from George Strawbridge’s Augustin Stable.
John Gunther’s, Without Parole drew post 10 in the Breeders Cup $2,000,000.00 Grade 1 Turf Mile that goes as race 9 on Saturday’s Breeders Cup Card.
John and Tanya Gunther’s homebred Group 1 winner Without Parole enters Saturday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile off a nearly six-month layoff and also will make his first start since being transferred from John Gosden in England to Chad Brown in New York.
On Tuesday morning, the son of Frankel left Barn 48 at 6:45 a.m. PT in company with fellow Brown Breeders’ Cup entrants Structor and Selflessly, both juveniles. The trio had an easy gallop around the track before returning.
“I got him in August and he’s been training really well,” Brown said. “He’s a nice sound horse and very straightforward. He came to me in good condition.”
Last year, the four-time winner from nine starts won the prestigious St James’s Palace Stakes (G1) at Royal Ascot. Winless this year from two starts, he ran well to be fifth by six lengths to standout filly Almond Eye in the Dubai Turf (G1) in March. He then faltered badly to finish last in the Lockinge Stakes (G1) in May.
“It’s a tough spot for your first time in the country and off form, but we thought we would take a shot because he was training particularly well, especially holding company with Bricks and Mortar in the mornings,” Brown said. “I’m not sure what the owners’ plans are, but we hope (he stays in training in 2020).”
