6th-Ellis, $60,000, Msw, 8-12, 2yo, 5 1/2f, 1:04.30, ft, 7 3/4 lengths.
STUD LOVIN (c, 2, Nyquist–Livin Lovin {GSW-USA, GSP-Can, $162,153}, by Birdstone) never gave his backers and connections a moment's doubt here, debuting with a stylish 7 3/4-length victory as the 5-2 second choice. Leading from the two path right from the jump, Stud Lovin came into the stretch off the back of a :46.09 half and cruised home from there. Meraj (Army Mule) out kicked a rival home for second. Last Cookie (Bernardini), Frosted's half-brother and 'Insights' runner, was slow into stride from the blocks, trailed early and came home seventh after floating six wide into the stretch. A $220,000 OBS June (:10 1/5) purchase this summer after selling for $160,000 at last year's Fasig-Tipton July sale, Stud Lovin is the most recent winner for his graded-stakes winning dam. Livin Lovin has a 2022 McKinzie filly and was bred to Game Winner for 2023. Sales history: $160,000 Ylg '21 FTKJUL; $220,000 2yo '22 OBSOPN. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,000.
