Bay of Plenty made it two wins in a row with a devastatingly easy victory at Belmont Park Wednesday. The dark bay colt was soon at the head of affairs, was always in control through fractions of :22.76 and :45.29 and pulled clear effortlessly in the stretch to win by 9 1/4 lengths as the 4-5 favorite. Roman Approval (Roman Ruler) was second and Divine Energy (Tapit), after a troubled start, was third. Bay of Plenty, fourth behind subsequent GII Tampa Bay Derby winner Ring Weekend (Tapit) when stretched out to 1 1/16 miles second time out at Gulfstream Feb. 8, graduated by a front-running 7 1/4 lengths at that distance at Aqueduct Mar. 22. Bay of Plenty is out of Darley homebred Kotuku, a half-sister to the dam of GISW Little Belle (A.P. Indy). The 11-year-old mare, already the dam of Fortify (Distorted Humor, GISP, $323,407), has an unraced 2-year-old filly by Street Cry (Ire), a yearling filly by Medaglia d'Oro and she produced a Distorted Humor colt this spring. Bay of Plenty's second dam, Group 1 winner Flagbird, was also campaigned by Darley. Lifetime Record: 4-2-1-0, $95,200.
