On Saturday, Nov. 30, Honor Code won the Grade II Remsen Stakes at Aqueduct Racecourse. Following his Remsen Stakes victory, Honor Code shipped out on Sunday, heading to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital, Lexington, Kentucky, according to the Daily Racing Form, where he will be treated to remove an undescended testicle.
Once the procedure is complete and Honor Code is fit enough, he is scheduled to resume his training regime at Payson Park, located in Indiantown, Florida.
Shug McGaughey, trainer, has said that Honor Code’s connections are doing their best to eliminate a potential problem to their horse down the road.
As far as Honor Code’s planned races are concerned, McGaughey said that Honor Code may have two starts prior to the Kentucky Derby. There are thoughts about having the A.P. Indy colt make his three-year-old start in the Grade II Fountain of Youth Stakes that is run on Feb. 22 in Gulfstream Park.
