St. Joe Bay, the thoroughbred named in honor of Gulf County’s jewel, will be back on the racetrack Saturday in San Diego. St. Joe Bay will run in the Bing Crosby Stakes, a Grade 1 race, on the same track at which his owners hope to have him back on in November for the Breeder’s Cup. It will be the horse’s first race since finishing fourth, just a head out of second, in a $2 million race in Dubai in the spring. After a month off, St. Joe Bay was back in training last month. In the coming months, his owners are pointed toward the Grade 1 Santa Anita Spring Championship in early October before the Breeder’s Cup Nov. 1. Prior to Dubai, St. Joe Bay, a former Triple Crown prospect converted to a sprinter, had won three straight races, including a Grade 2 win at Santa Anita in February. St. Joe will also have jockey Kent Desormeaux back in the stirrups. Desormeaux, a Hall of Fame jockey, was not available for Dubai after having the reins for six of St. Joe Bay’s previous seven races, four of them wins. St. Joe Bay was bred by Bonnie Heath Farms. Bonnie and Kim Heath owned a home in South Gulf County for over a decade. Bonnie named the horse after one of his favorite fishing spots.
