6th-Kentucky Downs, $255,000, Alw, 8-31, (R), 2yo, 6 1/2fT, 1:16.87, fm, 1/2 length.
COIN MINER (c, 2, Cloud Computing–Require, by Blame) finished well down the center of the course on Ellis debut July 30 to miss by a neck in third and was given a 10-1 chance to graduate in this colts' division of the Keeneland Sales allowance, restricted to horses bought or led out unsold at Keeneland September last year. Settled slightly ahead of mid-division as they raced down the hill and onto the turn, Coin Miner was held together approaching the stretch as Aspenite (Constitution) threatened to take them all the way. The latter carried a three-length bulge into the final eighth of a mile and looked home free, but James Graham conjured up one final surge from Coin Miner and the duo was along in the nick of time. The winner is the first starter and scorer for his dam, a half-sister to the late Grade III winner Recruiting Ready (Algorithms). There is plenty of action in Coin Miner's third dam, Claiborne's talented MGSW Trip (Lord at War {Arg}), not only the dam of SW Passport (Pulpit), but also of Globe Trot (A.P. Indy), whose produce include impressive young Spendthrift sire Bolt d'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro), GISW Global Campaign (Curlin)–who holds court at WinStar–and MSW/MGSP Sonic Mule (Distorted Humor). Required is also the dam of a yearling Goldencents filly, a weanling full-brother to Coin Miner and was most recently covered by Mo Donegal. Sales history: $40,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $154,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
