 Summer Revolution backed up an extremely impressive debut romp with another promising score in blazing time at Saratoga, earning ‘TDN Rising Star’ status. The chestnut was let go at 14-1 in his July 4 debut going seven furlongs at Belmont and broke a bit slowly from the rail before quickly making up ground and blowing away the competition in the stretch by 7 1/4 lengths with a 90 Beyer. Bet down to a nickel above 3-2 in this first try against winners, Summer Revolution broke smoothly under Irad Ortiz, Jr. and sat third early on before making a quick advance to challenge the leader by a quarter in :22.51. Taking over on the turn while blitzing through a :44.87 half-mile, he kicked clear strongly in the stretch and came home three lengths to the good in a very sharp final time of 1:21.03. Late-running Neolithic (Harlan’s Holiday) was clearly second-best. The victor is a half-brother to American Act (Quiet American), SW & MGSP, $239,717; and Night Party (Rahy), MGSP, $287,223. His stakes-winning dam is responsible for a 2-year-old Bodemeister colt named Sharp Knife, a yearling colt by Bernardini and a Street Sense filly foaled this term. She was most recently bred back to Tonalist. Sales history: $40,000 Ylg ’14 KEESEP; $90,000 2yo ’15 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $96,000.
