CONVICT (c, 2, Constitution–Southern Charmer {SP, $109,615}, by Dixie Union) was bet down to 9-5 favoritism from a 4-1 morning-line quote for this debut off a best-of-89 half-mile over the Belmont training track in :48 flat Nov. 22 and proved the public right with a gutsy score. Sent straight to the front by Javier Castellano, the $180,000 EASMAY buy ticked off an opening quarter in :22.69 and a half in :46.59. More Graytful (Graydar) ranged up to challenge the chalk in the lane, but Convict kept on finding to hold that rival at bay by a head. He is the 25th winner for his freshman sire (by Tapit). The winner’s dam has a weanling filly by Tiznow and was bred back to Justify. Sales history: $180,000 2yo ’19 EASMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $34,100.
