Greatest Honour Nearly Ready To Resume Training; McGaughey Will Target Winter Campaign

Trainer Shug McGaughey told bloodhorse.com on Monday that multiple graded stakes-winning 3-year-old Greatest Honour should be ready to resume training by Sept. 1. A Courtlandt Farm homebred son of Tapit, the colt won both the G3 Holy Bull and G2 Fountain of Youth to kick off his 2020 season.

Greatest Honour has been off since a disappointing third-place finish as the favorite in the G1 Florida Derby on March 27.

“He had an old cyst in a pastern and we gave him time for it to fill in,” McGaughey told bloodhorse.com. “It was nothing major but something we had to get behind him so he could move forward.”

With Greatest Honour’s anticipated return to training on Sept. 1, McGaughey hopes to target a race in New York like the G3 Discovery on Nov. 27 in preparation for a winter campaign in Florida. The G1 Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream in January is a primary goal, the trainer said.
