Scabbard Contender Profile

Owned and bred by Joseph W. Sutton, Scabbard has shown flashes of talent while facing tough competition across the country. After running into traffic on the far turn of the Iroquois Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs, losing several lengths of ground in the process, Scabbard re-rallied tenaciously to finish second behind the acclaimed Dennis’ Moment.


Scabbard never challenged for victory in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), finishing a distant fourth, but the slow and tiring track at Santa Anita might not have been to his liking. The bigger question mark is whether Scabbard has the breeding to excel over classic distances. As a son of More Than Ready out of a Gone West mare, Scabbard has the pedigree of miler and will have to outrun his breeding to excel on the Road to the Kentucky Derby.
