INTENSE HOLIDAY (c, 3, Harlan’s Holiday--Intensify, by Unbridled’s Song)
, a late-on-the-scene third in Gulfstream’s GII Holy Bull S. Jan. 25, would not be denied this time to earn his first stakes success. Drifting up to 5-1 at the off after being favored for part of the early wagering, the Todd Pletcher representative bided his time out in the clear as Albano (Istan) showed the way. He began to pick off horses with a sweeping rally turning for home, and kept coming to reel in the pacesetter by a head in 1:43.86. Vicar’s in Trouble (Into Mischief), the 2-1 choice off a romp in the local GIII LeComte S., made a menacing move before settling for third. Lifetime Record: 7-2-0-1.
