Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Uncaptured Back on Worktab


By Dick Downey

Uncaptured, winner of the Grade II Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill Downs last November, put in his first workout since then on Tuesday at Ocala Training Center.

Trainer Mark Casse sent Uncaptured out for a three-furlong move timed in :35.60 (1/7).

Uncaptured, winner of six of seven starts, was sidelined after the Kentucky Jockey Club. He bruised a foot coming out of the race, recovered, and went back in to training. Then he popped an abscess on another foot.

Casse has maintained for some time now that Uncaptured will make his first start either in the 1 1/16-mile Team Valor Rushaway Stakes or the 1 1/8-mile, Grade III Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park on March 23. It will all depend on how Uncaptured has progressed to that point.

Casse acknowledges it;s not the ideal route to the Kentucky Derby, if at all, but the trainer has been left with few options due to the delays in training caused by Uncaptured's foot problems.

Uncaptured began his career at Woodbine and is a known quantity on synthetic track such as Turfway's. However, he also won both the Grade III Iroquois stakes and the Kentucky Jockey Club on Churchill Downs' dirt track.

Look for Uncaptured to join Casse's other runners stationed at Palm Meadows soon.
