ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – Sir Anthony broke poorly, sat off the pace, and split horses in the stretch to soar to an easy win in Saturday’s $100,000 Bruce D. Memorial Stakes at Arlington Park. This was the first win since breaking his maiden last November for the three-year-old son of Mineshaft who went off at odds of 35-1.
Sir Anthony broke poorly and cut out wide in front of P R Radio Star. Meanwhile, 2-1 morning line favorite, The Tabulator, broke well outside with Navy Armed Guard and Chief Oakie Dokie also breaking well on his inside. The front-running trio of The Tabulator, Navy Armed Guard, and Chief Oakie Dokie stayed three-wide the whole way around setting fractions of :24.30, :47.70, and 1:12.58. At the top of the stretch, the leaders quickly faded and jockey Florent Geroux guided Sir Anthony between horses and directly to the lead. Sir Anthony eventually won with a comfortable two-length lead. Nobrag Justfact was second best and was followed by PR Radio Star who got up on the outside just in time to finish a neck ahead of Navy Armed Guard in fourth.
“I had a great trip, a nice stalking position tucked in on the fence and saving ground,” Geroux said after the race. “Once my horse saw the light he responded really well when I asked him.”
Sir Antony was bred by owner Richard Otto of Richard Otto Stables, Inc. and was named Sir Anthony as a gift to trainer Anthony Mitchell. After the race, Mr. Otto had nothing but great things to say about the horse and about winning the Bruce D Memorial.
“It’s terrific to see not only a horse that you bred win, but to do it at Arlington, standing here with the Duchossois family. We were good friends with Bruce and this is a special race. Of course, we had a wonderful rider, Florent Geoux, one of the best in the country, and that helped us out a lot. It’s just a spectacular day.”
Sir Anthony returned $72.20 to win, $23.00 to place, and $11.80 to show. Nobrag Justfact brought back $7.20 to place and $4.60 to show, while P R Radio Show paid $19.20 to show.
