    Effinex on target for the Grade 1 Whitney
    HorseRacingNation.com July 30, 2016
    Tri-Bone Stable's Effinex was on the main track for his first post-Suburban workout, going five furlongs in 1:00.65 seconds under exercise rider Kelvin Pahal. The son of Mineshaft remains on target for next Saturday's Grade 1, $1.25 million Whitney Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.
    Earlier this month at Belmont Park, the Jimmy Jerkens-trained Effinex became the first horse to win back-to-back Suburbans since Devil His Due, who was trained by his late father Allen Jerkens. Mike Smith, aboard for Effinex's last three wins, including the Grade 1 Clark Handicap, rode Devil His Due to victory in the 1994 Suburban.

    RLT: G1W Effinex, with earnings of $3,312,950, retires as the third-richest New York-bred of all time.
  • Very interesting article on why Effinex is standing in New York instead of Kentucky, where he could probably get a higher stud fee. I believe his owner also wants to be able to visit him on a regular basis up in New York.
