If recent form is any indicator, Three Chimneys Farm’s and Fern Circle Stables’ King Fury will be a horse to be reckoned with in Friday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) at Keeneland.

The chestnut colt won the Street Sense S. at Churchill Downs on Oct. 25, meaning he will be coming back in just 12 days. He drew post 2 in the 14-horse field and will have Brian Hernandez, Jr. who has been aboard for both his victories, in the irons.

Trainer Ken McPeek has always been high on the son of Curlin, who brought a whopping $950,000 at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling sale. Bred by the Heider Family Stables, King Fury is the first foal out of Taris, who was a five-time graded winner of more than $1 million.

Friday’s 1 1/16-mile Juvenile is race 10 at 5:15 p.m. ET.
