Fan-Favorite Bodexpress Under Consideration For Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile

Following a triumphant, near track-record setting victory at Gulfstream Park West this weekend, fan-favorite Thoroughbred Bodexpress could be targeting the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on Nov. 7 at Keeneland. Trainer Gustavo Delgado told the Daily Racing Form that the 4-year-old exited his allowance win in good order, and that either the Dirt Mile or the Grade 1 Clark at Churchill Downs on Nov. 27 may be his next targets.

“The main thing about the Dirt Mile is that it’s around two turns at Keeneland, which suits him perfectly,” said assistant trainer Gustavo Delgado, Jr.. “The subject of going to the Breeders’ Cup just came up this morning, so we’ll need a few days to assess everything before making a final decision. One concern is whether he’d be able to get into the field if the race were to overfill, which looks very possible. If not, the Clark would likely be the choice, since he’s already shown he runs well at Churchill Downs.”

Bodexpress gained notoriety when he dropped jockey John Velazquez at the start of the 2019 Preakness Stakes and took a solo tour around the Pimlico oval. Overall, the Bodemeister colt has three wins, four seconds and three thirds in his 16 lifetime starts, earning $412,500.
