And What About That Missing Red Bank Stakes Horse?

Posted Friday, May 17, 2013

The Red Bank Stakes drew a full field for Saturday, but it was not the names on the entry page that drew attention. It was the name that was not there. 

            For the past three runnings, the one-mile Red Bank has belonged to one horse, Get Serious. Owned by the partnership of Dinan, Moore and Phantom House Farm and trained by the partnership of John Forbes and Pat McBurney, Get Serious won the race in 2009, 2010 and 2012. 

            So why is the 9-year-old not in the entries for the 2013 running of the Red Bank? 

            “He wrenched an ankle last month,” McBurney said. “We haven’t been able to train him. “He’s 20 to 30 days away from being ready to run again.” 

            Get Serious, a son of City Zip, has won 13 of 27 starts at Monmouth, including runnings of the Elkwood, Battlefield, Oceanport and Monmouth Stakes in addition to three Red Bank renewals.
