SHOGUN SAMURAI (f, 2, First Samurai--Revolutionary Act, by Boston Harbor)
was let go at 15-1 for this unveiling as the money poured in for Pletcher firster Lucky for You (Malibu Moon). Straight to the front, the bay received token pressure from the favorite through splits of :23 flat and :46.17. He began to open daylight at the head of the lane, and kept on to best the late-running Money Game (Exclusive Quality) by 3 3/4 lengths in 1:16.67. Lucky for You faded to a non-threatening third. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0. Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
