1st-Aqueduct, $85,000, Msw, 11-17, 3yo/up, f/m, 1m, 1:38.00, ft, 9 1/4 lengths. SIGNAL FROM NOISE (f, 3, Arrogate--Holiday Soiree {SW & GISP, $405,642}, by Harlan's Holiday) was bet like a sure thing Thursday, going off at a commanding 1-5 off a 5 3/4-length defeat behind Tizzy In the Sky (Sky Kingdom) on debut over this same track and distance Sept. 23.

Returning Sea The Stars Colt Heads Arqana Opener 

DEAUVILLE, France--Everything changes, especially the format of bloodstock sales, and Arqana's five-day Octoberfest is no exception. This year Part I has been extended to two days from one, and after the first session in Deauville on Monday, it is probably also fair to say that the more things change the more they stay the same. Sea The Stars (Ire) was the sire of the top lot. Ecurie des Monceaux, that juggernaut of a French sales consignment, was the session's leading vendor, and Stroud Coleman Bloodstock the leading buyer, but Haras...

6th-Belmont, $90,000, Msw, 6-26, 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:17.35, ft, 5 3/4 lengths. ACCRETIVE (g, 3, Practical Joke--Mallory Street {SP, $111,837}, by Street Sense), bet hard for this belated unveiling Sunday at Belmont, ran to the money with a dominant victory despite covering significantly much more ground than all of his rivals. Displaying a shark worktab from Chad Brown's auxiliary base at Monmouth, capped by a bullet five furlongs in 1:00 2/5 (1/7) June 17, the gelding was favored throughout the wagering before breaking as the 5-4 chalk. Settling in fifth...

Early Voting Gives Gun Runner First Classic Winner in Preakness

The story is a familiar one. Seth Klarman, Chad Brown and Jose Ortiz teaming up for a win with a lightly-raced colt in the second jewel of the Triple Crown.

Fast forward to 2022, history repeated itself with the same connections snagging Pimlico's marquee race with Early Voting (Gun Runner). The colt's victory also provided a well-deserved birthday gift for his...
