Prisoner | Chelsea Durand

3rd-Belmont, $62,080, Msw, 6-3, 2yo, 5f, :58.42, gd.

PRISONER (c, 2, Violence–Al Max Diner {SW, $131,226}, by End Sweep) denied the overly hyped Fauci (Malibu Moon) to graduate on debut in New York’s first baby race of the year. Seizing the early advantage, the 6-5 second-choice dueled with favored Fauci through a :22.54 opening quarter and into the far turn. Prisoner shrugged off his foe in the stretch, cruising clear to a dominant 4 3/4-length victory. The winner is a half to Manuka Honey (Borrego), SW & MGSP, $177,084. Stakes winner Al Max Diner produced a Wildcat Red colt last year and was bred back to that Florida-based stallion.
