Wesley Ward-Trained Maclean's Music Firster Sharp on Debut at Keeneland

Raise the Bar | Coady

2nd-Keeneland, $64,254, Msw, 4-10, 2yo, 4 1/2f, :52.17, sy, 2 1/4 lengths.
RAISE THE BAR (c, 2, Maclean's Music–Paschali, by Bernardini) ran to the money for trainer Wesley Ward as the even-money favorite on debut over the sloppy going at Keeneland Wednesday. The rail-drawn Douglas Scharbauer homebred was hustled to the front beneath John Velazquez, kicked for home under very confident handling and was never seriously asked for run while crossing the wire 2 1/4 lengths clear of Tuxedo Park (Complexity). Paschali, a daughter of MGISW Pure Clan (Pure Prize), was bred to Shoplifted and Competitive Edge for 2024. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,551.
