Jonathan Sheppard wins again at Foxfield for long-time owners

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--Adding two wins at Foxfield Fall Races on Sept. 29 to a win in the feature at Shawan Downs, Jonathan Sheppard and two of his long-time owners had a very good weekend.

jonathonsheppardWillowdaleJonathon SheppardEd Swyer's Hudson River Farms won two races, the timber featured race at Shawan Downs and a maiden race at Foxfield, and Kevin Galbraith's KMSN Stable won a maiden race at Foxfield.

"After losing two of my biggest owners, it means a lot to me to win three races for two owners who have stayed with me for many years," said Sheppard.

Jack Doyle, who rode Sheppard's three winners, added two additional wins, one on Saturday and another on Sunday, to win five of the 12 races offered over the weekend.

"We had three fillies to run in the $20,000 Filly and Mare Maiden Hurdle at Foxfield, but trainers were only allowed to enter two, so Inverness was entered as trained by my assistant trainer, Keri Brion," said Sheppard.

"Keri has a good relationship with the owner, Kevin Galbraith, and she's worked with that filly a lot," said Sheppard.

Jonathan Sheppard wins the featured Timber race at Shawan Downs with Codrington College

HUNT VALLEY, Md.--Jonathan Sheppard saddled Codnington College, a 9-year-old gelding that he co-owns with Ed Swyer's Hudson River Farms, to win the $25,000 Brown Advisory Legacy Chase Oen Timber, the featured race at Shawan Downs on Sept. 28.

"Jack Doyle gave him a good ride," said Sheppard. "Jack's a good rider, but he excels over timber."

Codrington College arrived in this country in 2013 after three starts over fences in Ireland and began as a hurdle horse.

"It seem like he wasn't realizing his potential over hurdles," said Sheppard.  "He has a high cruising speed and a good jump, but he was jumping too high over the national fences."

So Swyer and Sheppard began to discuss what to do with Codrington College.

"Ed Swyer owned the horse himself then, and I was joking with him one day, and he said `I hate timber racing,' and I said `I do too."

After joking around, they decided to switch him to timber.

"So I got half of him," said Sheppard. "There wasn't any money that changed hands, but I only charge him half the training fee now."

Trace of Grace, up close throughout the 1 1/16 mile race, went to the lead midway on the final turn and edged away to win by 1/2 length.

She's now won eighth times with six seconds and nine thirds from 35 starts and earned $481,552.

"I'm on cloud nine," said Wendy Hendriks. "It's unbelievable that he won that. There were nine horses in there, and they were all good horses. It seems surreal."

Among the horses Surprising Soul beat were Winston C, who won both G1 stakes at Saratoga earlier this year, Scorpiancer, who won the G1 Iroquois and Moscato, who won the G3 Temple Gwathmey, both last spring.

"I got him as a 3-year-old," said Hendriks. "I bought him at a sale in Kentucky. Someone else had him out looking at him, and I saw him and liked him. I looked up his results, and he'd been running short for Kelly Ackerman, so I looked up his pedigree and thought he wanted long and grass. So I said to Ricky, `Let's buy him and make him a jumper.'"
