The New York-bred program will be celebrated Friday at Saratoga with an all state-bred card featuring six stakes, and a live-looking maiden race in the fourth headlined by Hoolie Racing Stable's firster CHULLIGAN (Justify) should not be overlooked. The chestnut, who sold for $825,000 last summer at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga, is the second foal to race out of three-time New York-bred stakes winner and 2017 GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint upsetter Bar of Gold (Medaglia d'Oro), following GSW turfer Coinage (Tapit). The Christophe Clement trainee shows a sharp-looking worktab over this track, most recently going a half-mile in :47 4/5 (8/40) from the gate Aug. 19. Quick to Accuse (Accelerate) also opens his account in here for owner Rupp Racing and trainer Horacio De Paz. The bay is a half to millionaire New York-bred stalwart and 11-time stakes winner Mr. Buff (Friend Or Foe) and sold for $200,000 at OBS March after breezing a furlong in :10 1/5. TJCIS PPs
