Effinex on the grounds for Stephen Foster


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Effinex, the solid favorite for the Grade 1, $500,000 Stephen Foster Handicap on Saturday, arrived here Sunday via the equine charter flight that brought a planeload of Kentucky horses back from New York. Trainer Jimmy Jerkens was scheduled to arrive here later in the week to oversee the horse’s final preparations. Gary Stevens has the mount in place of Mike Smith, who is committed to Songbird on Saturday in the Summertime Oaks at Santa Anita.
