Earner | Coady

7th-Oaklawn, $60,000, Msw, 4-11, 3yo, 1 1/16m, 1:44.41, ft.
EARNER (c, 3, Carpe Diem–Devious d'Oro {SP, $169,047}, by Medaglia d'Oro) was pounded into 4-5 favoritism off a debut second to 'TDN Rising Star' and subsequent Oaklawn allowance scorer Echo Town (Speightstown) in a six-furlong Fair Grounds maiden Jan. 18 and gave trainer Steve Asmussen a rolling personal Pick 3 with a dominating maiden victory Saturday at Oaklawn Park. Drawn outside in gate 11, the chestnut raced three deep around the first turn in the second flight of horses and improved by a couple of spots to loom a menacing third rounding the second bend. Under a long hold from Ricardo Santana, Jr., Earner rolled up three abreast at the quarter pole and grabbed the race by its throat, streaking clear through the final eighth of a mile to post a 3 3/4-length victory. The debuting Pit Boss (Union Rags) made eye-catching progress along the rail to complete the exacta. Earner, whose owners have tasted noteworthy success with progeny of WinStar first-crop sires, cost $425,000 as a Keeneland September yearling in 2018. The stakes-placed Devious d'Oro produced a colt by Liam's Map in 2018 and a Practical Joke filly last year. Sales history: $425,000 Ylg '18 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $46,000.
