Clondaw Warrior in best form of career at age 9


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – Clondaw Warrior is 9. That is a ripe old age for a racehorse, and yet he comes into the $300,000 American St. Leger on Saturday having just won the biggest prize of his career, first place over 20 rivals in the $331,800 Galway Handicap Hurdle in Ireland. The race was July 28, meaning Clondaw Warrior runs on about two weeks’ rest with a ship from Ireland to Chicago in between.
