Coach took her record to a perfect three-for-three with an authoritative victory in the Rags to Riches S. at Churchill Downs Sunday. The dark bay filly, a 4 1/2-length debut winner sprinting six furlongs at Indiana Grand Aug. 10, romped home by 9 3/4 lengths going 5 1/2 furlongs at that oval in a Sept. 15 allowance contest. Hustled up to keep pace with the early frontrunners, Coach was a tracking third down the backstretch. She strode up to challenge for the lead with a three-wide move on the far turn and took control into the lane, turned back Lady Traveler late and pulled away in the final sixteenth. And Stay Out has a yearling colt by Klimt and a weanling filly by Collected. She was bred back to Enticed this year. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
