Three Alarm Fire became the afternoon's second TDN Rising Star domestically and third overall with a thoroughly dominating performance to win his first allowance condition and second race in succession. The $140,000 Keeneland September acquisition belied debut odds of 11-1 to run second in a one-mile maiden over this track July 11 and overcame a poor break in a Travers Day maiden at Saratoga Aug. 23, besting Liam's Map (Unbridled's Song) by 2 1/4 widening lengths Aug. 23. The form of that race was flattered when Liam's Map, an $800,000 KEESEP yearling, destroyed a field of maidens here by 9 1/2 lengths Sept. 26 (98 Beyer Speed Figure), earning himself a Rising Star in the process. Three Alarm Fire was sent off the 3-5 chalk and was away without incident before being guided into the clear for a three-path run down the backstretch. The handsome chestnut cruised up to the leading duo three abreast nearing the stretch, wrested command from
GIII Pegasus S. third Encryption (Exchange Rate) soon after and was pushed out hands-and-heels to score by 3 1/2 lengths. There was a gap of 5 1/2 lengths back to the third. The winner's dam, produced by a Grade III-winning half-sister to El Corredor (Mr. Greeley), Roman Ruler (Fusaichi Pegasus) and Maimonides (Vindication), dropped her first three foals in Japan before being bred to this Darley sire, one of seven at their nursery on the island nation. Three Alarm Fire is reportedly his sire's lone produce in this country. Lifetime Record: 3-2-1-0, $120,000.
