TORONTO, ON – Three Diamonds Farm’s Field Pass put forth a determined effort to get up in time and clinch Saturday’s $125,000 Ontario Derby (G3) at Woodbine.
Field Pass was the 5/2 second choice as he broke from the rail under Kazushi Kimura and settled into a close stalking position as the 9/5 favorite Mighty Heart set the initial pace.
Put to a drive in the far turn, Field Pass joined Belichick in the stretch battle to wear down a slowing Mighty Heart and a pressing Malibu Mambo.
Taking over near the 1/8 pole, the Mike Maker trainee drove clear late to win the 1 1/8-mile fast synthetic route by a length in 1:48.35.
“My planning was that I didn’t want to get too forward, but I didn’t want to send him to the front,” Kimura saud. “That was the perfect position, just waiting for room.”
Belichick saved second by a 1/2-length over a game Malibu Mambo, who only relented late and was well-clear of Mighty Heart in fourth.
Mnemba Island, Deviant, Dune of Pilat, and Lucky Curlin completed the order of finish.
Field Pass’ win was his third at the graded stakes level, following July’s Transylvania (G3) at Keeneland and March’s Jeff Ruby (G3) at Turfway Park. The 3-year-old Lemon Drop Kid colt’s record now stands at 15-6-2-3 with $553,893 earned.
“Such a classy horse,” Kimura said. “I’ve watched him many times, winning replays. He’s nice, a nice horse.”
Field Pass returned $7.70 to win, $4.50 to place, and $2.80 to show. Belichick brought back $5.30 to place and $3.40 to show, while Malibu Mambo paid $3.90 to show.
