Code of Honor | Joe Labozzetta

7th-GP, $55K, Msw, 3yo, 7f, 3:10 p.m. ET

BEARS WATCHING (Karakontie {Jpn}), a half-brother to MGISW Code of Honor (Noble Mission {GB}), looks to earn his diploma at second asking following a very good closing third on debut in the Gulfstream slop Feb. 6. The William S. Farish homebred, trained by Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey, finished two spots ahead of subsequent 'TDN Rising Star' Collaborate (Into Mischief) that day, who returned with a daylight maiden victory Feb. 27.

The field of 12 also includes $510,000 KEESEP graduate Stainless Steel (Quality Road), who makes his debut for WinStar Farm LLC and CHC INC., and trainer Rodolphe Brisset. TJCIS PPs
