Up With the Birds graduated second out over this track and trip Sept. 29 and went on to take the Coronation Futurity Nov. 10, the Black Gold S. going about 7 1/2 panels over the Fair Grounds sod Mar. 2 and was runner-up in the GIII Transylvania S. over the Keeneland turf Apr. 5. The favorite rated towards the back of the field down the backstretch in this one. The homebred began to inch closer exiting the backstretch, circled four wide on the bend to take control in upper stretch and pulled away down the stretch. Up With the Birds will aim for a start in the July 7 Queen’s Plate. "He came into the race in good order and timing wise he's had plenty of space between races," said winning trainer Malcolm Pierce. "Let's just keep our fingers crossed for six more weeks." Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
