Quester | Lauren King

QUESTER (c, 3, Into Mischief–Osare {SW, $234,605}, by Medaglia d'Oro), a $775,000 Keeneland September graduate, finished off well to be a debut third sprinting over this surface and was the even-money selection while stretching out to a distance of ground here.

One of two in this field not entered for the tag, the immaculately bred bay showed good speed from the inside gate, but was nevertheless outfooted to the front by Dunes of Gold (Midshipman). Content to chase from second down the backstretch, Quester was asked for his best nearing the stretch, reeled in the front-runner with a bit less than an eighth of a mile to race and edged away.

Quester's stakes-winning dam, a $300,000 Keeneland September yearling, is a daughter of MSW & GSP Bubbler (Distorted Humor), a $170,000 purchase by Eamon Cleary at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale in 2010 and later bought back on a bid of $4.7 million at FTKNOV just days after her son Arrogate (Unbridled's Song) outgunned California Chrome in the 2016 GI Breeders' Cup Classic. Osare is also the dam of a 2-year-old colt by Into Mischief, a yearling filly by Gun Runner and was most recently bred to Life Is Good. Quester is cataloged as hip 45 at next Friday's Keeneland April Horses Of Racing Age Sale. Sales history: $775,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $32,940.
