Battle Hardened is a son of world-class sire Giant’s Causeway, winner of six Group I races in Europe and near winner of the 2000 Breeders’ Cup Classic-G1 at Churchill Downs. Giant’s Causeway has produced nearly twenty Grade I or Group I winners worldwide. He is also the sire of top Kentucky Derby horse betting contender Creative Cause.

Jen’s Fashion won 2-of-21 races lifetime, including the 1992 Ellis Park Debutante Stakes. She has produced seven winners, including Colonial Colony, winner of the 2004 Stephen Foster Handicap-G1, at Churchill Downs.


Battle Hardened began his horse betting career on October 30, 2011 at Churchill Downs. Racing in a six-furlong sprint, he failed to show early speed and passed a few horses late to finish fourth at 12/1.

Coming back on November 26, and stretching out around two horse betting turns, Battle Hardened showed significant improvement; racing close to the lead from the start and finishing second.

Battle Hardened traveled to Gulfstream Park in south Florida for the horse betting winter, and got one more race under his belt on New Year’s Eve. Stretching out once again to nine furlongs, he dueled for the lead from the outset, after breaking from post 11, and lost a head-bob on the wire while finishing well-clear of the horse betting rest.


Battle Hardened was scheduled to make his 2012 debut in another nine-furlong maiden race at Gulfstream Park on February 4, but trainer Eddie Kenneally also entered in the colt in the Sam F. Davis-G3 at Tampa Bay Downs. He elected for the tougher spot and his star responded, drawing away to a professional 1 ¼-length win over ten horse betting rivals.

Battle Hardened was entered to run in the Tampa Bay Derby-G2 on March 10.
