CODE OF HONOR (c, 2, Noble Mission {GB}–Reunited {GSW, $326,771}, by Dixie Union) showed good speed and kept finding more in the stretch to graduate smartly at first asking at the Spa Saturday. Away sharply from his inside draw, the Farish homebred vied for command through an opening quarter in :23.07. He began to shake clear at the top of the stretch and stayed on nicely down the lane to fend off heavily favored Wild Medagliad’oro (Medaglia d’Oro) by 1 1/2 lengths. Code of Honor, a son of 2005 GIII Thoroughbred Club of America S. winner Reunited, is the 5th winner for his freshman sire (by Galileo {Ire}). Reunited has also produced GII Best Pal S. runner-up Big League (Speightstown), GSP, $202,640. She had a colt by Karakontie (Jpn) this year and was bred back to Honor Code. Sales history: $70,000 RNA Ylg ’17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $46,750. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
