City of Light | Lane's End Photo

5th-Del Mar, $84,500, Msw, 9-10, 2yo, 1mT, 1:36.03, fm, 1/2 length.
FORMIDABLE MAN (c, 2, City of Light–Fanticola {GSW & GISP, $561,986}, by Silent Name {Jpn}) was a 9-2 shot here at first asking and the bay colt wrangled the lead past the grandstand, settling on the front end into the first turn. The hooded Mike McCarthy trainee continued to set the fractions and arriving at the top of the lane, he fended off a challenge from fellow firster and favorite Ngannou (Mendelssohn) to win by half a length. The winner's dam produced a yearling filly by Flatter and on Apr. 20 she foaled a filly by Knicks Go. Fanticola was bred to Jack Christopher for 2024. Sales History: $375,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,200. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
