Fifth Risk is Fifth Winner for Outwork

FIFTH RISK (f, 2, Outwork–Blue Orleans, by Bluegrass Cat) was the even-money favorite to become the fifth winner for her freshman sire (by Uncle Mo). The dark bay filly prompted the pace through an opening quarter in :22.54 and a half in :46.13. The pacesetter began to tire into the stretch, but Fifth Risk was challenged by Jade Empress (Shanghai Bobby) and gamely outbattled that foe to the wire to win by a half-length. Fifth Risk, a $160,000 FTKJUL yearling, is a half-sister to Go On Mary (Broken Vow), SW, $225,303. Blue Orleans, a half-sister to multiple Grade I winner and Brazilian champion Pico Central (Brz) (Spend a Buck), produced a full-brother to the winner last year and a filly by Bolt d'Oro this year.
