CASINO GRANDE (c, 3, Cairo Prince–Selective {GSP, $111,639}, by Tapit) took his record to two-for-two, winning a salty Gulfstream allowance. A front-running debut winner at Tampa Mar. 14, he fired a pair of bullet works at Payson leading up to this, including a five-furlong move in 1:02 3/5 (1/7) May 8. Dispatched at 5-1 here, the dark bay stalked the leaders from a two-wide third through a first half in :46.03. Sticking his nose in front on the backstretch run, Casino Grande swept clear in the lane to win by three lengths over Extraordinary (Speightstown). ‘TDN Rising Star’ Edge of Fire (Curlin) was third. Calumet Farm purchased Selective for $80,000 with the winner in utero at the 2016 Keeneland November Sale. She produced an Oxbow colt in 2018 and a Liam’s Map filly in 2019. She was bred back to Tamarkuz. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $35,400. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
