Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) winner Cody's Wish, Curlin's fastest sprinting son, will remain in training in 2023, according to Godolphin USA's Director of Bloodstock Michael Banahan.

“He came out of the Breeders' Cup very well,” said Banahan of the Godolphin homebred, who was produced by Grade 1 winner Dance Card, by Tapit. “He's sound, healthy, and we're extremely excited about seeing him race next year.”

Future Darley stallion Cody's Wish has won or placed all 11 of his starts, including victories in seven of his last eight leading up to the Nov. 5 Dirt Mile, with his namesake Cody Dorman in attendance at Keeneland.

“Cody's Wish continues to show his versatility having won the G1 Forego sprinting, a total of five one-turn mile wins, including the G3 Westchester, and now the two-turn Dirt Mile,” Banahan continued. “We'll give him a bit of a breather, then plan out a 2023 campaign that again takes us to the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita.”
