+PURE SHOT (c, 2, Fast Bullet–Darn That Girl, by Darn That Alarm) was drawn widest for this career debut and dismissed at odds of 22-1, but none of that mattered when the gates opened, as the chestnut immediately rocketed to the front and cleared the field through a quarter-mile in :22.47. Traveling well within himself while maintaining a clear advantage coming off the turn, he was never truly headed and kicked away to score by 2 1/4 lengths. Allured (Flatter) completed the exacta. 3-1 favorite Avery Island (Street Sense) finished seventh. Pure Shot became the second winner for his freshman sire (by Speightstown). The winner is a half to Dream of Me (High Cotton), MSW, $290,850. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,800. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
