Dec. 9: Busy Day For Tight First-Crop Sire Race


Good Magic | Sarah K. Andrew 

by Margaret Ransom

Since neither of the top three first-crop sires battling it out to win the 2022 division title had a runner on Thursday, their numbers remain unchanged. The focus now turns to a busy Friday with Bolt d'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro) in a solid position to pull away from both Justify (Scat Daddy) and Good Magic (Curlin) with six runners total–three in the fifth race at Turfway Park, two in the sixth at Woodbine and another at Oaklawn Park. Good Magic's lone runner on Friday–Zia Park Juvenile S. winner How Did He Do That–is entered in the Advent S. at Oaklawn Park, while Justify's daughter, Prove My Love, is set to contest the fourth race at Turfway Park.

Note that Japanese earnings are added every Sunday night, and there may be delayed reporting from other countries, which could postpone the final results in a very tight race into early January. We will also be providing a preview of 2-year-olds entered the next day in North America and beyond.

1st—Bolt d'Oro, $2,482,229

2nd—Good Magic, $2,446,087
