Search Results Outslugs Miss Brazil In Busher

Search Results | Sarah Andrew

Search Results (Flatter) gave her sire a second 3-year-old stakes winner Saturday, outgaming pacesetting Miss Brazil (Palace Malice) in the final furlong to take Saturday's $250,000 Busher S. at Aqueduct and earning 50 points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks in the process.

Sent off an easy-in-the market 2-1 second favorite after touching 3-2 early on, Search Results was put into the race by Javier Castellano and took up pace-pressing duties from second as Miss Brazil led them along through controlled splits of :24.53 and :49.64. The duo raced side-by side past the quarter-pole, as they began to get away from their four rivals and clearly had the race between them as they entered the final eighth of a mile. Shoulder to shoulder into the last half-furlong, Miss Brazil dug in determinedly, but Search Results–racing on her incorrect lead–was in for the fight and was up in the final couple of strides to take it by a half to three-quarters of a length. The winner's stablemate The Grass Is Blue (Broken Vow) was third.

“She put me in a good position to rate and I didn't want to take that away from her and take her back,” said Castellano. “When I asked her, she didn't switch leads, but everything I asked for, she gave it to me. She responded. I like the way she galloped out and I think she's going to be a good filly in the future. Two turns will be even better.”

Search Results, whose sire was also represented by Listed Al Bastakiya S. winner Panadol at Meydan in Dubai Saturday morning, was stepping straight into stakes company off a four-length debut success sprinting six furlongs at Gulfstream Jan. 3.

From the family of the GI/G1SW Mind Your Biscuits (Posse), Search Results has a 2-year-old full-sister and her dam was bred to Nyquist after missing to Flatter's champion son West Coast for 2020. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
