Exaggerator Arrives At WinStar For A Short Break; Future Plans Undecided

Preakness winner Exaggerator has been sent to WinStar Farm for a freshening, according to a report in the Daily Racing Form.

Trainer Keith Desormeaux told the DRF in an interview Friday that he wasn’t sure if the 3-year-old son of Curlin would make the Breeders’ Cup Classic, saying “…it may be a little close to the race to think he’d return from a freshening and run, but we’ll see what happens.”

WinStar Farm acquired the breeding rights to Exaggerator in April, and will stand the colt at the farm upon his retirement. Elliott Walden, the president and chief executive of WinStar, told the Form that Exaggerator would be “re-evaluated” at the farm.

“He needs at least a brief freshening. He’ll be X-rayed, and we’ll see where we’re at,” Walden said. “We’ll see what the next week brings and see what is decided.”

Both Walden and Desormeaux confirmed to the DRF that WinStar “was in control of managing Exaggerator’s career.”
