RSS Feeds Monday, March 11, 2019

LARGENT (c, 3, Into Mischief--Life in Seattle, by Unbridled) went wire-to-wire and strode clear down the lane to score a 4 1/4-length debut victory. Sent off at 8-1, the striking bay broke alertly from his inside post and took the lead into the first turn. After setting fractions of :23.18 and :47.71, he shook loose approaching the stretch and came home a much-the-best winner. The Rock Says(Uncle Mo) was second and Big Torch Key (Lemon Drop Kid) was third. A $460,000 KEESEP yearling purchase, Largent is a half-brother to Kona Blend (Dixieland Band, MSW & GSP, $174,960); and to Edgewater (Lion Heart, MSP, $250,142). Life in Seattle is a daughter of multiple Grade I winner Life at the Top (Seattle Slew), who was purchased by Lazy Lane Farms for $1.9 million at the 1988 Keeneland November sale. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,800. O-Twin Creeks Racing Stables & Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners; B-Lazy Lane Farms, LLC. (VA); T-Todd A. Pletcher
