Grade 1 New York Stakes Winner Visionaire Retired from Racing, Won King’s Bishop S. at Saratoga and Gotham S. at Aqueduct at 3, Grand Slam Colt Winner in 5 of 12 Starts for Trainer Michael Matz

Four-year-old Visionaire, who rolled home to a 2 ¼-length victory last summer in the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga, has been retired from racing, it was announced by trainer Michael Matz. "Visionaire most likely suffered a knee chip in the King's Bishop," said Matz. "His next two races were unlike him. Surgery was performed by Dr. Larry Bramlage last fall, but he has not trained to our satisfaction, so the owners have decided to retire him, rather than blemish his racing record." – Team Valor Headline News

Hull Romps to Daylight Win by Widening 7 ¾ Lengths at Turfway, Colt Never Allowed to Run and Comes Within 4/5 of Track Record, Recent Team Valor Acquisition on Track for G2 Lexington Stakes

2019-12-05T17:45:43+00:00

Hull stamped himself as much more than a "one-hit-wonder" and as a bona-fide contender nationally in the sophomore ranks on Thursday at Turfway Park when he parlayed his debut romp at Fair Grounds in February with an encore performance saturated with brilliance. The recent Team Valor acquisition cruised by 7 ¾ lengths in his first start against winners and despite being held in the proverbial "death-grip" by jockey Miguel Mena for the entire 1:16 1/5 of the race, the blue-sky prospect stopped the clock just four-fifths of a second shy of the track record on the Polytrack. – Team Valor Headline News
