Oscar Performance's Set Runs Them Off Their Feet in Debut

Set Ryan Thompson

12th-Gulfstream, $70,000, Msw, 2-24, 3yo, 7 1/2fT, 1:27.11, fm, 5 3/4 lengths.
SET (c, 3, Oscar Performance–Three Am Tour {Ire}, by Strategic Prince {GB}) broke well and was quick into stride to show the way from the fence through :24.01 and :47.31 early splits. Never under any threat as 1:10.07 flashed up, it was a race for second place once they hit the stretch as the Mark Casse trainee drew off from the field to win as easily as he pleased by 5 3/4 lengths. Stakes-placed Typhoon Fury (Mitole) had to settle for a well-beaten second.

A half-brother to SP Busy Morning (War Dancer), Set is the most recent to the races for his dam, who was a winning racemare on two continents. Three Am Tour has also produced a yearling colt by Galilean. She visited both Oscar Performance and War Dancer for this spring. Sales history: $150,000 2yo '23 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $42,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
