Charles Fipke's Forever Unbridled and Seeking the Soul, each exiting Grade I wins and both aiming to the $16-million Grade I Pegasus World Cup, have arrived at their winter base of Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots and have resumed training.
“The mare is doing great,” trainer Dallas Stewart said. “She jogged and I haven't decided when I'll breeze her yet. Both she and (Grade I Clark Handicap winner) Seeking the Soul are doing very good and are very happy. I'm glad to be back in New Orleans. I already tore up some gumbo and some oysters.”
Stewart confirmed that both horses are being aimed toward the Pegasus, the richest race in the world. No riding assignments have been finalized, as journeyman John Velazquez rode both in their last-out triumphs, including a championship-clinching Grade I Breeders' Cup Distaff victory by Forever Unbridled.
