Uncaptured settled in fifth behind Power Phil (Philanthropist), who rushed up to take an early lead and carved out splits of :24.15 and :49.42. River Seven moved to the head of affairs following three quarters in 1:13.51, as Uncaptured continued to bide his time under a patient Miguel Mena. Ready to make his move approaching the quarter pole, Uncaptured was forced to swing out five wide for the stretch drive, and appeared to have too much to do as River Seven continued to show the way. However, the dark bay continued to whittle away at the leader’s advantage, collared that rival midstretch and drew clear in the final strides to take the second jewel in the Canadian Triple Crown. Named Canada’s Horse of the Year and Champion 2-year-old Male in 2012 after winning six of seven starts at two--including a trio of stakes over Woodbine’s Polytrack--he added a pair of victories on the Churchill Downs dirt in the Oct. 28 GIII Iroquois S. and Kentucky Jockey Club S. Nov. 24. Runner up in his seasonal debut in the GIII Spiral S. Mar. 23, Uncaptured finished 10th in Keeneland’s GI Blue Grass S. at nine furlongs Apr. 13 before coming home in second in his two latest in the May 5 Wando S. at Woodbine and when returned to the dirt for the GIII Matt Winn S. at Churchill June 15.
