+TAMAN GUARD (g, 3, Midnight Lute–Bellastrega, by Deputy Minister), tabbed the 4-5 chalk off a string of fast works, including six furlongs in 1:10 4/5 at Los Alamitos Apr. 11, brushed with a rival to his outside leaving the stalls, but quickly recovered to set the pace. In charge through a :21.70 opening quarter, the gelding hit the homestretch three wide, but kept finding for a facile 4 1/2-length victory. Street to Indy (Street Sense) closed to take second by a half-length. Sales history: $70,000 Ylg ’14 BARJAN; $50,000 Ylg ’14 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $35,100.
