COGBURN (c, 3, Not This Time–In a Jif {SW, $203,382}, by Saintly Look) fourth on career debut Aug. 21 at Saratoga, and then scoring a maiden breaking victory Sept. 16 going six panels beneath the Twin Spires over the main track by 4 1/4 lengths, was not seen again until this victorious 3-year-old seasonal bow. Going off a heavily supported 4-5 favorite at a familiar distance with first-time Lasix, the $310,000 FTKSEL pinhook turned $150,000 OBSAPR graduate (:20 3/5) outbroke his rivals and ran them off their feet. Four lengths clear at the top of the lane, Cogburn maintained that margin easily down to the wire over stakes-placed Ignitis (Nyquist), who rallied determinedly for second. The winner has a 2-year-old half-sister by Classic Empire as well as a yearling half-sister by Tapiture. The dam is expecting a foal by Promises Fulfilled this season. Sales history: $52,000 Wlg '19 KEENOV; $310,000 Ylg '20 FTKSEL; $150,000 2yo '21 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 3-2-0-0, $139,060.  Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
