Enduring Spirit | Coady Media

2nd-Churchill Downs, $116,625, Msw, 5-16, 2yo, 5f, :57.98, ft, 1 length.
ENDURING SPIRIT (c, 2, Tiz the Law–Life Starts, by Into Mischief) was let go at odds of 16-1 with an educational debut run under his belt and became the first winner for his freshman sire (by Constitution) with a front-running success in Thursday's second race from Churchill Downs. Seventh after showing some early dash in his Apr. 10 unveiling over a sloppy Keeneland main track, the $100,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga graduate got drier underfoot conditions this time around and was quickly into stride from gate two, opening up a clear advantage through the opening exchanges. Well in the hands of Reylu Gutierrez for the run around the turn, Enduring Spirit cut the corner just in advance of Conquering Cat (Game Winner), opened up into the final furlong and proved not for catching in graduating by a length. Bob's Carrot (Daredevil) was third ahead of odds-on Empress Julia (Uncle Mo), who was away awkwardly from the inside gate and could make little impact late, finishing a distant fourth. A half-sister to GSP Izzie's Halo (Halo's Image), the unraced Life Starts–a $35,000 purchase at FTKFEB in 2019–is also the dam of Enduring Spirit's yearling full-brother and was most recently bred to Corniche. Sales history: $75,000 Ylg '23 FTKFEB; $100,000 Ylg '23 FTSAUG. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $69,675. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
