GLOBAL CAMPAIGN (c, 3, Curlin–Globe Trot, by A.P. Indy), a half-brother to Bolt d'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro), MGISW, $1,016,000, kicked off his career with a sharp victory at Gulfstream Saturday afternoon. The bay showed no fewer than four bullet moves on the worktab, headed by a five-furlong drill in 1:00 2/5 (1/21) at Palm Meadows Dec. 29 and was off as the even-money favorite. Global Campaign broke well and forced the issue from the outside while hard held in second. He gained command under his own restraint on the far turn, kicked for home in complete command while racing on his left lead, and switched over in midstretch to win by a geared-down 5 3/4 lengths. Growth Engine (Tapit) was second. Global Campaign is the final produce from three-time winner Globe Trot, who is also represented by Sonic Mule (Distorted Humor), MSW & MGSP, $264,190. Sales history: $250,000 Ylg '17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,800. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
