Awesome SlewCoady

Ocala Stud-based Awesome Slew was represented by his winner at Gulfstream when Awesome Strong romped in his unveiling. Dispatched as the slight second choice at 7-5, Awesome Strong was away without incident from the rail and settled in third through a snappy :21.79 opening quarter. Taking control entering the far turn, the bay rolled clear in the lane to graduate in style by six lengths. Don't Answer (Uncaptured) was the runner-up.

The winner is a half to Bad Debt (Grand Reward), MSW & MGSP, $838,330. Pleasant Ring has not produced a foal since Awesome Strong, but was bred to Bucchero last term.
