Undefeated Juvenile No Nay Never Through for Year
Undefeated world traveler No Nay Never, recent winner of the Darley Prix Morny (Fr-I), is unlikely to race anymore this year, and will instead target the St. James’s Palace Stakes (Eng-I) at Royal Ascot next June.
Trainer Wesley Ward told Skysports.com that the 2-year-old colt by Scat Daddy was going to “have a couple of months in the field here in Ashford in Lexington. I can’t think of a more beautiful and tranquil place for the horse have some down-time and get some long grass.”
The first major goal of 2014 for No Nay Never would be a return trip to Royal Ascot for an attempt to win the St. James’s Palace Stakes. The dark bay colt made a big splash at this year’s Royal Ascot meet, charging to a one-length victory in the Norfolk Stakes (Eng-II).
Ward added, “If we give him a little breather now, give him a physical break and some time to get himself together, I hope he can go and show how good he can be as a three-year-old, just as he has dominated at two.”
