+IRISH WAR CRY (c, 2, Curlin">Curlin–Irish Sovereign, by Polish Numbers) came in toting an above-average series of works, capped off by a half-mile from the gate in :49 flat (2/12) at Fair Hill Nov. 3, and was let go at 42-5 after drawing in off the also-eligible list. Traveling eighth behind a :22.83 quarter, the homebred advanced strongly four deep on the turn, was carried out at the top of the lane, swept to the lead while drifting in greenly at the furlong pole and kicked away late to a very promising 4 1/2-length graduation, coming home in well under :24 for his final quarter. The winner's dam foaled a Lookin At Lucky filly this term before being bred to Graydar. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $22,800. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
