Retama: Wounded Warrior Mile closes out meet


Quiet Acceleration will be returning to one of his favorite turf courses Saturday night to lead the $35,000 Wounded Warrior Mile at Retama Park. The one-mile race for Texas-breds who have never won a stakes drew a field of 11.

The Wounded Warrior Mile was created to complement an anonymous donation that is to be made to the Wounded Warrior Project that supports injured members of the armed services. The race closes out the meet at Retama.

Quiet Acceleration is 2 for 4 over the Retama turf, including an allowance win Oct. 27. He also ran third in the $50,000 Texas Hall of Fame over the local course Nov. 10. Danny Pish bred, owns, and trains Quiet Acceleration.
