Was a professional debut winner going a grassy mile at Arlington July 14 and, with a sharp five-furlong bullet drill in :58 4/5 over the Chicago synthetic July 14, looked imposing on paper shipping in for this. Forwardly placed while in between horses early, the chestnut tugged his way to the front when the rail opened up down the backstretch. He had a head in front at the top of the lane as Mr. Bandini's Band was a persistent pursuer, but the favorite ultimately left that foe in the dust inside the final sixteenth to provide his freshman sire (by Boundary) with his first black-type winner.
