6th-Keeneland, $96,700, Msw, 4-21, 3yo, 7f, 1:27.39, ft, 3 3/4 lengths.
DRAGOON GUARD (c, 3, Arrogate–Filimbi {GSW & MGISP-USA, SW-Fr, $670,763}, by Mizzen Mast) just missed by a neck to future SW Otto the Conqueror (Street Sense) when he debuted last September under the Twin Spires. Back on the work tab in late February for Brad Cox, the homebred went off with Lasix as the 3-5 choice here to kick off his 3-year-old season. The colt charged out of the gate, but was content to lay off of Rock N Roll Bolt (Bolt d'Oro) up the backstretch. Taking on the leader around the far turn, the gray put the pacesetter away at the top of the lane, kicked for home past the eighth pole and won geared down by 3 3/4 lengths over Term (Medaglia d'Oro). Filimbi produced a filly last year by Into Mischief and foaled another, this one by Constitution, Mar. 8. The winner was bred top to bottom by Juddmonte, who campaigned his dam, second dam Flute (Seattle Slew) and third dam Rougeur (Blushing Groom {Fr}). They also stood Arrogate and Dragoon Guard's broodmare sire, Mizzen Mast. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $86,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
