6th-Churchill Downs, $123,155, Alw, 5-2, (NW1X), 3yo/up, 7 1/2f, 1:27.44, ft, nose.
CASTLEWARDEN (c, 4, Into Mischief–Calm Water, by Empire Maker) hit the board in his first pair of attempts last year, then punched through by 1 1/2 lengths over the Oaklawn slop Mar. 15. The 9-5 second choice tracked a pair of leaders up the backstretch. Castlewarden accelerated around the far turn and took over the lead before the top of the lane. Seemingly in control, favored Classic Legacy (Into Mischief) rallied in the stretch and the pair traded blows all the way to the wire with Castlewarden getting the bob. The winner is a full-brother to G1 Dubai World Cup winner Laurel River, G1SW-UAE, GSW-USA, $7,470,676. A full-sister to MGISW Emollient and a half-sister to MGISP Hofburg (Tapit), Calm Water is also responsible for the 2-year-old filly Long Wave (Constitution) and a yearling colt by Constitution. She had a filly by Into Mischief earlier this year. Lifetime Record: 4-2-0-2, $159,460. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
