WINNABLE (f, 3, Justify–Mischievousmaximus, by Curlin) became the 2,000th career winner for trainer Ken McPeek with this debut score at Turfway Park Wednesday evening. Overlooked at 14-1 here, the Stoneleigh Farm homebred raced under a snug hold in third, loomed up while three deep on the far turn and took care of business from there to win impressively by 3 1/2 lengths. Mischievousmaximus, a full-sister to Classic winner Exaggerator, was bred to Justify for 2024. Winnable is her first and only produce. McPeek posted on X, “Thank You!! To everyone for kind messages. To staff, clients & horses for all they've done. What I'm most proud of was winning for Joe Murphy & @TurfwayPark where I began. Joe's father, JB Murphy gave me a horse as a very young trainer in 1987. Judge CW was my 1st $100k earner.”  Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $41,678.
