Purloin Brings Up a Century of Winners for Arrogate

Purloin became the 100th individual winner for the late Arrogate Saturday at Aqueduct | Chelsea Durand

5th-Belmont The Big A, $83,700, Msw, 10-14, 2yo, f, 1m (off turf), 1:38.78, sy, 1 1/2 lengths.
PURLOIN (f, 2, Arrogate–Smooth Path, by Scat Daddy), a $200,000 Keeneland September yearling turned $400,000 OBS April breezer, was bet down to 6-5 favoritism in a race scratched down to just four entrants when it was washed onto the sloppy main track. Content to trail, but always in touch beneath Kendrick Carmouche, the gray filly raced two wide around the turn, came out and around rivals into the lane and pulled clear in the final eighth of a mile to open her account by 1 1/2 lengths at first asking and become the 100th individual winner for her late sire (by Unbridled's Song). Grantley Acres purchased the unraced Smooth Path, a half-sister to the ill-fated MSW Taraz (Into Mischief), for $160,000 with this filly in utero at the 2020 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. The mare's foal of 2022, a filly by Authentic, was a $250,000 purchase out of last year's FTKNOV sale and was hammered down to FMQ Stables for $400,000 at KEESEP last month. Smooth Path produced a Candy Ride (Arg) filly this season and was bred to Nyquist and Speightstown. This is the extended Juddmonte female family of Yashmak, Commander In Chief (GB), Warning (GB) and Dushyantor, et al. Sales history: $200,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP; $400,000 2yo '23 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
