It's so nice seeing a "Jackson Bend" thread again! Wish him the very best .... and he's kept happy.

I noticed he's nominated for the Kelso this weekend.

Just thinking about JB, after yesterdays last place finish in the Kelso, and could not remember if it was stated
by his connections with any certainty, that he would return for another try in the shed in 2014, or if they would
continue to race him depending, of course, on how well he did. His 2013 "comeback" campaign, although not disastrous,
has also not been exactly stellar. Just curious as to what you would do if he were your horse - continue to run him in high
level stakes races, or perhaps drop him into some higher level allowances to see if he can get some of his old confidence
back - if indeed that is a problem here. Or maybe just retire him - again. I'm certainly no expert here, just wondering what
the next step might be with him.

At any rate, all good luck to Jackson Bend - a favorite of many...

Maybe the memory of that training accident resurfacing with getting bumped at the start? Hopefully it didn't aggravate any latent trouble spots.

I'm interested in this as well. He just didn't seem to fire yesterday. Haven't read any comments yet from trainer, jockey or owner. Hopefully, they'll shed some light on their future plans soon.

From Brisnet

Grade 1 veteran Jackson Bend (Hear No Evil) has been unable to visit the winner's circle in nine starts since a nose win in the 2012 Carter H. (G1), but that could all change on Sunday as the six-year-old chestnut faces five rivals in the $100,000 Sunshine State at Gulfstream Park. Jackson Bend was unplaced in three races after the Carter and subsequently retired, but since coming back to the track has gone 0-1-3 from six outings. Included in those were a second in the Forego (G1) at Saratoga and a third in the Smile Sprint H. (G3) over the summer. Trainer Stanley Gold will send out Jackson Bend off a failed attempt at stretching out most recently with Javier Castellano in the irons. Also entered in the Sunshine State are Bahamian Squall (Gone West), Fort Loudon (Awesome of Course) and Close It Out (Closing Argument), the respective top three from last year's running of the seven-furlong affair. Bahamian Squall would go on this season to take the Smile Sprint and place in the Alfred G. Vanderbilt H. (G1) and Gulfstream Park Sprint Championship (G3).

He's a dark (liver?) chestnut.

That's good to hear. A step in the right direction for JB. Hopefully, he gets to visit that winners circle habitually in 2014!

To be fair, JB started to go into a slump while still with Zito. Started his career like a lighting bolt with Gold. I'm not
sure that this is a trainer issue. JB just does not seem to be quite the horse that he was before the "wreck". Not as
focused. I'm hopeful that they can straighten him out in 2014, as I really like this guy. Looked much better in that
last race...
