Blueblooded Juddmonte homebred ARTORIUS (Arrogate) ran a huge race on debut at Keeneland Apr. 16, producing an eye-catching rally from well back to be second behind a 'TDN Rising Star' performance from Under Oath (Speightstown). The son of MGISW Paulassilverlining (Ghostzapper), who was recently profiled in Steve Sherack's “Second Chances” column, gets that second chance Friday in the Belmont opener.
He faces a pair of well-related colts also making their second start in Shreveport (Tapit) and Exact Estimate (Into Mischief). The former, a Godolphin homebred, is a son of MGISW Seventh Street (Street Cry {Ire}) and a full-brother to GSW & GISP Lake Avenue. The gray made a four-wide move to be third in his even-panel unveiling at this oval May 5. Exact Estimate, a $375,000 FTKSEL buy, is a half to MGSW & GISP Tizamagician (Tiznow). The Chad Brown pupil was a well-beaten second at Keeneland in his Apr. 24 career bow. TJCIS PPs
