Well Monied to become broodmare


Well Monied, the winner of the Grade 2 Honeymoon Handicap in 2009, has been retired, trainer Howard Zucker said on Friday. Zucker said the filly was injured during a gallop in June and will be offered at a breeding stock sale in November.

"We plan on going through the sale in November as a broodmare," Zucker said. "She got a little injury. The timing blew us out of the water for what we had in mind for the summer.

"If the market is bad, we'll hold on to her and breed her and sell her the next year. We don't have any thoughts of bringing her back."

Zucker said Well Monied has a small lesion in a distal sesamoidian ligament.

"There was a little heat and a little swelling," Zucker said. "That's a bad place to have an injury. They're slow healing."

Owned by C.T. Grether, Well Monied won 4 of 10 starts and $386,300.

Cozi Rosie gets time off

Cozi Rosie, the winner of the Grade 3 Senorita Stakes at Hollywood Park in May, will be rested for the remainder of the summer because of concern over an ankle, trainer John Sadler said.

Cozi Rosie was scratched from a scheduled start in the Grade 1 American Oaks on July 3 when she did not train to Sadler's satisfaction the day before the race.

"We'll probably rest her for 45 days," Sadler said.

Owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, Cozi Rosie has won 3 of 8 starts and $157,280. She was second in the Grade 2 Honeymoon Handicap in her last start on May 31. Sadler said Cozi Rosie could return for the Oak Tree at Santa Anita meeting, which starts in late September.

Sadler will have the likely favorite in the $200,000 Swaps Stakes next Saturday in Sidney's Candy, the winner of the Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby. Owned by Jenny Craig, Sidney's Candy finished 17th in the Kentucky Derby in his most recent start.

Bourbon Bay eyes Del Mar Cap

Bourbon Bay, the winner of three graded turf stakes at Santa Anita earlier this year, has resumed training with Neil Drysdale for a late summer comeback. Thursday, Bourbon Bay breezed three furlongs on turf at Hollywood Park in 38.60 seconds.

Earlier this month, Drysdale said Bourbon Bay will be considered for the $200,000 Del Mar Handicap over 1 3/8 miles on turf on Aug. 29.

Owned by Dave and Jill Heerensperger, Bourbon Bay has won 5 of 13 starts and $389,424. Bourbon Bay is unbeaten in four starts this year. His most recent starts was a victory in the historic San Juan Capistrano Handicap over about 1 3/4 miles on turf in April.
