Bourbon Bash Can't Be Caught For D. Wayne Lukas


Bourbon Bash | Coglianese

7th-Saratoga, $105,000, Msw, 8-13, 2yo, 6f, 1:11.77, ft, 8 lengths.
BOURBON BASH (c, 2, City of Light–Buy Sell Hold {SW & GSP, $125,520}, by Violence) made it a hat trick for jockey Flavien Prat, breaking from the inside gate and wasting no time in flashing his early speed to quickly open up a length on the field in the first furlong. Under a stoic ride a path off the rail, Bourbon Bash put six lengths on a quartet of chasers passing the quarter pole and never gave them a chance to catch him, marching home on cruise control to defeat a loaded field of maidens by eight lengths without ever being asked at odds of 4-1. Ohana Honor (Honor Code) drew in off the also-eligible list and closed well to fill out the exacta. Bourbon Bash is the fourth winner for his freshman sire (by Quality Road) and second at Saratoga. Buy Sell Hold is a full-sister to GI A.G. Vanderbilt H. winner and current Three Chimneys stallion Volatile and the third dam is MGISW Lady Tak (Mutakddim). Bourbon Bash, his dam's first foal, has a yearling half-sister by Union Rags and a weanling half-brother by Uncle Mo. Buy Sell Hold was bred back to Gun Runner for a 2023 foal. Sales History: $280,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $78,750. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
