Last year's GI Three Chimneys Hopeful S. hero was forced to miss the Breeders' Cup due to an ankle chip, and finished a distant second to Gemologist (Tiznow) in a Gulfstream allowance in his sophomore bow Mar. 16. The bay reported home a distant 11th in the GIII Illinois Derby last time Apr. 7, but returned to winning ways here on the turnback. Sent to the front through easy fractions :23.67 and :47.16, the short-priced second choice shook clear at the top of the stretch and found the wire with some room to spare. "I was very happy with the effort," said winning conditioner Terri Pompay. "He needed a race to pick his head up after the last one and coming back off the layoff. Everything moves forward from here." She added, "I talked to the owners and we wanted to win this and were thinking maybe the [GII Woody Stephens S. June 9] and then maybe later in the year trying to stretch him back out and see if he can do it. But we want to keep his confidence up and give him a few good races in a row where we know he can be really effective." Click for the brisnet.com chart or Video, sponsored by Taylor Made Sales.
