Uncle Morsoakhor’s 4-year-old son from Smart Strike (CAN), Bebetter (Jockey Jevian Toledo) beat seven other horses to win by 3-3/4 lengths. A boon to Old Friends and their “Old Friends for Life” retirement program.
“Mike Lepol made us famous when he retired the Cool N Collective to Old Friends of Cabin Creek, The Bobby Frankel Division,” said Old Friends Founder and President Michael Blowen said. “It’s no surprise he wins the first Old Friends Purse, given to him by Josephine Abercrombie on Preakness Day in Pimlico.”
If he ever retires to Old Friends, Be Better will join three other Old Friends for Life retirees (Next Shares, Calamos and Get Western). By winning the Old Friends Stakes, they took advantage of automatic entry into retirement for life at Old Friends. (Black type) At Kentucky Downs.
