A.U. Miner's racing career is finished, but he is doing well following leg injury to repair the damage he sustained during the Breeders' Cup Marathon.

A.U. Miner, the 6-year-old horse who sustained a badly fractured left-front sesamoid on the final turn of the Nov. 5 Breeders’ Cup Marathon, continues to make progress at the Hagyard Davidson McGee Equine Medical Institute after undergoing surgery to repair the injury.

A.U. Miner comes from last under Calvin Borel to win the $200,000 Greenwood Cup for a second straight year.

Perhaps a return to suburban Philadelphia was all A.U. Miner needed to regain his good form.

Winless in three starts since upsetting last year’s 1 1/2-mile Greenwood Cup at 14-1, A.U. Miner roared from last to first to capture the $200,000 Greenwood Cup at Parx Racing for the second time.
