First Peace: Returning To Sprints Seems Ideal | Upcoming Race:Del Mar July 21, 2024

Three year old colt for Mark Glatt might have found his hole card on Sunday when he tried the hill for the 1st time in the John Shear stakes for sophomores. Off at 4/1 in a field of 8 and a race loaded with early speed, he sat 4th early under Mike Smith and was about four lengths back coming down the hill. Smith kept him on the fence after the dirt crossover, and deftly found a seam on the rail. He burst through it and grabbed the lead at the 1/8 pole and then had enough left in the tank to hold off the late runners. He had been routing with some quality sophomores in earlier races and giving it up late, but returning to a sprint at this distance is ideal for him. He’ll get another shot at a graded stakes before this meet is over. Up the ladder for this Kentucky bred son of Funtastic.
