    12th – KD, $122,520, MSW, 9-19, 2 yo, 6 ½ f T, 1:18.34, fm.

    ARGOT (c, 2, Stroll -- Argue, by Storm Cat) gained third via the stewards in his first race track appearance at Ellis Park July 5 and reported home fifth transferred to the turf up at Saratoga Aug. 2. The dark bay could do no better than a flat fifth over that course going 5 ½ furlongs Aug.19 and was hammered at the windows to be the 2-1 market leader by the time the gates opened. Trying the longest distance of his career thus far, Argot kept a close eye on the runaway leader around the far turn. He took command inside the final 100 yards and dashed past the post a 2 ¼ length winner. King‘s Player (Shakespeare) was runner-up. Argue, out of a half-sister to MGSW and MGISP E Dubai (Mr. Prospector) and GISW No Matter What (Nureyev), foaled a filly by Discreetly Mine in 2014 and was bred back to Quality Road this term. Lifetime Record: 4-1-0-1, $77,805.

  • Montego Bay Takes Allowance Race Opening Day at Del Mar

    4th - DMR $76,700, Alw (NW2$X)/Opt. Clm ($62,500), 7-16, 3 yo/up, 1 1/8 m T, 1:48.24,fm.

    MONTEGO BAY (g, 6, War Chant - Exotic Point, by Point Given) last found the winner's circle over this course in July 2012 and returned from an almost 2 1/2 year absence with an eighth in a 10-panel grassy Arcadian optional claimer this February. Fifth cut back to a mile over the Golden Gates on Apr. 25, the Neil Drysdale trainee was second in another turf optional claimer at that venue May 25. Over looked at 15-1, the gelding raced without cover three deep in midpack through the early stages. He began to pick off horses around the far turn and reached the head of affairs as the field hit the straight. Montego Bay rolled through a mile in 1:36.41 with a slim lead and responded well to Drayden Van Dyke's urging to fight off a closing Jules Journey (Good Journey) and triumph by a head.
    Lifetime Record: 10-3-1-0, $117,000

Final time for the 23rd edition of the one-mile race was 1:36.97. Kitty Wine returned $4.80 for a $2 win wager.

    “She broke really good out of the gate,” Lanerie said. “When I turned for home, I knew she was the best horse. I rode her like she was the best horse.”

  • Regional Report: Bugle Breaks Her Maiden


    8th-GPX, $40,000, Msw, 3yo, f, 1 1/8mT, 1:48 3/5, Turf fm

    BUGLE (f, 3, War Front--Chatham {MSP, $156,431}, by Maria's Mon), a close second as the favorite on debut over a grassy mile at Churchill Downs Nov. 9, missed by only a nose once again as the 6-5 crowd's pick over 1 1/16 miles of Gulfstream lawn Dec. 11. She took all the money at the windows and was 2-1 in this third go. The $400,000 Keeneland September yearling raced in midpack against the pine. With work to do with three furlongs yet to travel, Bugle shifted to the outside of a tiring rival before splitting horses in late stretch to win by 3/4 lengths over Daring Duchess (Arch). Under Bugle's third dam is champion juvenile filly and MGISW Flanders (Seeking the Gold), who produced champion 3-year-old filly & MGISW Surfside (Seattle Slew). Sales history: $400,000 yrl '13 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 3-1-2-0, $39,400.
