Ready's Echo is Shadwell Best Turned Out Horse for Met Mile

ELMONT, N.Y. – Let’s Go Stable’s Ready Echo was named Best Turned Out Horse by Shadwell Farm Manager Gregory Clarke on Monday afternoon, prior to the 116th running of the Grade 1 Shadwell Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park.

Although he ran seventh in the Memorial Day feature, Ready’s Echo impressed Clarke enough to earn his groom, Martine Estrada, a $500 award.

“Martine has worked for me for a long time, like 10 or 11 years,” said trainer Todd Pletcher. “He works hard and he’s had some very good horses in his care, including (2007 Belmont Stakes winner) Rags to Riches. He’s very deserving of the award.”

The award began last summer at Belmont Park when Shadwell was presenting sponsor of the Suburban Handicap.

“Shadwell began this tradition after I had seen some of the grooms honored in this manner while I was visiting England,” said Rick Nichols, Vice President/General Manager of Shadwell Farm.

“I wanted to ensure Shadwell paid tribute to these people behind the scenes as well. They do not always get recognized for the special roles they play. We all need to be thankful for the effort and care they put forth for our horses.”

Shadwell Farm will also sponsor the Grade 1, $1 million Shadwell Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday, August 29.
