Matt Winn Stakes 2023: Disarm earns 1st graded success

Matt Winn Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $400,000 – 1 1/8 miles – Dirt – 3-Year-Olds

As expected, it was Verifying and Bo Cruz who broke the sharpest, and as they went into the clubhouse turn it was the latter who got to the front.

He set slow fractions with the first quarter going in 24.2 seconds and the half-mile in a leisurely 48.3 seconds.

In behind, the eventual winner DISARM had found a nice stalking spot on the inside just behind Bo Cruz and his main rival Verifying who tracked the leader in the two path.

They were followed down the back-stretch by Raise Cain who was three wide and traveling well enough but backed out things around the far turn, while Dennington, Go Soldier Go and King Russell were all off slow and could never land a blow.

As they reached the far turn Bo Cruz injected some pace but was immediately challenged on his outside by Verifying with Disarm waiting to make his bid.

They hit the top of the short stretch and Verifying came to take over at the furlong pole but was immediately challenged by Disarm who got by his rival in the last sixteenth and widened by half a length at the wire with Bo Cruz a further four and three-quarters of a length back in third with Raise Cain clear of the rest for the fourth spot.

Leslie’s Lady B Stakes

Stakes – Purse $175,000 – 7 Furlongs – Dirt– 3-Year-Old Fillies

Unifying secures her third career victory by disposing of the chal Topsy in the Leslie’s Lady B Stakes at Ellis Park on Sunday and now looks set for a step up the class ladder.

As they broke from the gates it was the big longshot B G Warrior who went to the speed early and he was tracked through by Tell Me When who laid outside in the two path.

The chalk Topsy broke well enough and found a spot in behind the leaders and was tracking wide in the four path with clear daylight ahead. Meanwhile, the eventual winner UNIFYING had settled nicely inside of the chalk and was waiting to pounce under the in-form Christian Torres.

One of the other fancied rivals She’s On The Rocks trailed early but began to make ground as they reached the far turn as did Freindlypersuasiion but she was posted very wide in the five path.

As they hit the top of the stretch B G Warrior still led but was joined by Tell Me When who briefly looked a danger but Unifying split rivals at the quarter pole and quickly widened. Topsy had also made ground and she went in hot pursuit of the leader but was no match for the Riley Mott-trained inmate and finished a well-beaten second, three lengths adrift at the wire.

B G Warrior battled bravely and held well for third, and a cutback next time looks on the cards, while She’s On The Rocks closed steadily in the lane to take the fourth spot and she’ll enjoy stretching out further next time.
