JACKIE'S WARRIOR (c, 2, Maclean's Music–Unicorn Girl, by A. P. Five Hundred) topped off a concise worktab with a bullet half-mile from the gate in :47 1/5 (1/35) at Keeneland June 9 and was made the 21-10 second favorite on debut. Hustled along early to contest the pace from the inside, Jackie's Warrior was taken hold of by Ricardo Santana, Jr. at the 3 1/2-furlong pole and switched out into the two path. Despite having lost some momentum in so doing, the $95,000 Keeneland September graduate had dead aim turning for home, struck to the front with a furlong and a half to race and pulled away to graduate by 2 1/2 lengths. Therideofalifetime (Candy Ride {Arg}) closed off well for second. Cousteau (Into Mischief), favored at 11-10, was off slowly, made a menacing move on the turn, but raced greenly late and crossed the line fifth. Produced by a 19-time winning half-sister to MSW Bernie the Maestro (Bernstein), Jackie's Warrior has a yearling half-sister by Candy Ride and a foal half-brother by American Pharoah. Sales history: $95,000 Ylg '19 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $45,064. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
