Fan-Favorite Millionaire Page McKenney Retired With Filling In Tendon

Some slight filling in his left front tendon has encouraged the retirement of 8-year-old gelding Page McKenney, a fan-favorite warhorse on the mid-Atlantic racing circuit, according to drf.com. Trainer Mary Eppler confirmed that the Pennsylvania-bred is sound and that he will have a good home in retirement, though precise plans have not yet been determined.

“I’m really not upset,” Eppler said. “He’s getting older and this is a good ending for him. I didn’t want anything to happen to him. He’s been so good to all of us. He’s done so much for everyone.”

Eppler claimed Page McKenney for $16,000 on July 20, 2013 on behalf of owner Adam Staple. From there, the gelding went on to win 21 races for his new connections, including multiple graded stakes races. Overall, Page McKenney retires with a record of 22-16-5 from 58 starts, with earnings of $1,905,940.
