Victim of Love Repeats in Vagrancy

ELMONT, NY – Victim of Love utilized a stalk-and-pounce approach under Joel Rosario to successfully repeat in the $150,000 Vagrancy Handicap (G3) at Belmont Park.

“She came home really nicely and exploded at the end and I was really proud of that effort. She put in a really nice race,” said Rosario. “She’s fast and it was a very good performance.”

Pacific Gale, Sadie Lady, Piedi Bianchi, and Honor Way completed the order in the Vagrancy. Kiss the Girl and French Empire were both scratched from the Vagrancy

“Last year when she came here, she was a big price because she ran badly in the Nellie Morse when we tried her going longer. I tried to rate her, but she wasn’t happy about that,” said Beattie. “She wants to be up there and involved early. That’s her number. The distance is perfect. Six and a half or seven furlongs is ideal. She can go a mile, but not at this level.”
Beattie said Victim of Love could return to Belmont for the Grade 3, $300,000 Bed O’ Roses on June 4.

This is Victim of Love’s first graded stakes win of the year and her first since winning the 2020 Vagrancy at 27-1. The 5-year-old daughter of Speightstown improved her record to 18-6-3-3 and has now earned $408,199 for owner Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC.

Victim of Love returned $6.30 to win, $3.90 to place, and $2.40 to show.
