Jackie’s Warrior Emerges From Breeders’ Cup With Knee Chip, Expected To Return In 2022

After finishing sixth as the heavy favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint, Jackie’s Warrior was diagnosed with a chip in his left knee.

According to the Daily Racing Form, the 3-year-old son of Maclean’s Music has undergone surgery with Dr. Larry Bramlage of Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, and is expected to return to the races in 2022.

This year, Jackie’s Warrior has won the G2 Pat Day Mile, G2 Amsterdam, G1 H. Allen Jerkens, and the G2 Gallant Bob.

“He’s an unbelievable, tremendous horse,” trainer Steve Asmussen told DRF. “I thought that the Allen Jerkens against Life Is Good was as good as horse racing gets. Unbelievably fortunate to be involved with him and very anxious to race him next year – because they don’t get any better.”
