Illuminare | Sarah Andrew

1st-Saratoga, $100,000, Msw, 6-7, 3yo/up, 7f, 1:22.56, ft, 1 3/4 lengths.
ILLUMINARE (c, 3, City of Light–I Still Miss You {MSW, $276,737}, by Majestic Warrior) jumped as the 9-2 third choice and flashed early speed up front before yielding the lead to 27-1 shot Call Bob (Central Banker). Poised right off that rival's flank up the backstretch, the $500,000 Keeneland September grad made his move off the turn, striking the front at the furlong marker and holding a steady advantage to the line to finish 1 3/4 lengths ahead of a closing Itza Mirrakle (Arrogate) who put in a good late run at odds of 24-1. Trulli Warrior (Curlin) came home sixth. Illuminare is the second foal and winner out of Astoria S. winner I Still Miss You. She has a 2-year-old Candy Ride (Arg) filly named Princess Fiona, lost her 2023 Justify foal and was bred to Street Sense for this year. Sales History: $500,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $55,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
