McPeek to train for Phoenix Ladies

Kenny McPeek is the latest name to appear on the Phoenix Ladies Syndicate trainers list as the Dubai-based owners continue to expand their presence in the US.

McPeek was on hand at the recent OBS Horses In Training sale to purchase a Mizzen Mast colt on behalf of the all-female group and the multiple graded stakes-winning conditioner will take charge of the juvenile’s career.

From the family of Grade One winner Greenwood Lake and out of winning mare Nikki’s Choice, the grey impressed in his breeze before McPeek went to $130,000 to secure him. A half-brother to a multiple winner the colt can also boost Grade Three success, Charley Barley, among his close relatives.

“We have been watching his success here in Dubai and it’s great to have one in training with him.” Said Phoenix Ladies chief Pamela Cordina.  “The colt has already started his education with Kenny and from the video’s he’s sent us he looks great and seems to have some decent raw ability. We’re already looking forward to seeing him on the race track!”
