DOMESTIC SPENDING (GB) (g, 3, Kingman {GB}–Urban Castle {SW-Eng}, by Street Cry {Ire}) firmed into odds-on favoritism in the final minutes of wagering before easing out to a relatively generous even-money and turned in a promising career debut. Ridden for some gate speed by Antonio Gallardo, the 300,000gns Tattersalls October graduate settled in the second flight of horses about four away from the rail down the backstretch. Asked to loop horses four deep at the quarter pole, Domestic Spending came calling for the lead with about a sixteenth of a mile to race and edged away to score by three-quarters of a length. Fellow firster Maroon Maniac (Violence) rallied up the fence for second, well clear of the debuting Alonzo Mosely (Tonalist) in third. Domestic Spending is the only produce from his dam, a $285,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling purchase in 2012 who passed away in 2017. A daughter of GSW/MG1SP Cloud Castle (GB) (In the Wings {GB}), Urban Castle was a half-sister to GSW Queen’s Best (GB) (King’s Best), the dam of GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf winner Queen’s Trust (GB) (Dansili {GB}); as well as SW/MGSP Reverie Solitaire (Ire) (Nashwan), dam of German highweight Royal Solitaire (Ire) (Shamardal). Domestic Spending’s third dam includes European standouts Warrsan (Ire) (Caerleon), Luso (GB) (Salse) and Needle Gun (Ire) (Sure Blade). Sales history: 300,000gns Ylg ’18 TATOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $11,600. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
