Filly By Upstart Breaks Maiden For Rudy Rodriguez

Upstart | Sarah Andrew

1st-Belmont, $90,000, Msw, 6-2, 2yo, f, 5f, :59.73, ft, 1/2 length.
STATUS SEEKER (f, 2, Upstart–Casual Cocktail, by Magna Graduate) breezed a furlong in :10.1/5 ahead of this year's OBS March sale and was put into training with Rudy Rodriguez, who also retains an ownership interest. Off as the 4-1 third choice here, Status Seeker lost a couple of spots from second up the backstretch, began to rally around the far turn and with good energy down the lane, ran down Permed (Street Boss) to break her maiden at first-asking by a 1/2 length. The winner's dam is responsible for a 3-year-old gelding named Closethegame Sugar (Girvin) and a yearling colt by Preservationist. She was bred back to that sire last year. Sales History: $85,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP; $45,000 2yo '23 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
