Amarish is the one to defeat in the Willard L. Proctor Memorial after a powerful debut win.

Owned by Jerry Durant and trained by Jeff Bonde, the Scat Daddy gelding out of the Awesome Again mare Issues won by 7 ¾ lengths as the 13-10 favorite May 26. The win was worth $31,200.

Undrafted, Just Call Me All, K Court and Lovmeister were also first out winners.

Trained by Wesley Ward for King 9 Stable LLC, Undrafted, a gelded son of Purim and the French Deputy mare French Jeannette, wired 11 opponents April 26 over the Polytrack at Keeneland. The three length victory earned $30,000 for the chestnut, who was purchased for $30,000 as a yearling.

A ridgling by Redattore and the Allen’s Prospect mare Alacrity, Just Call Me Al won by 1 ¾ lengths at 10-1 May 6. The win was worth $40,560 for owner-breeder and trainer Mike Harrington. A victory Saturday in the Proctor would be the third for Harrington. His earlier wins came with Alpenfest (2003) and Wild Uncle Kurt (2005).

Lovmeister, a Nineeleven colt out of the West by West mare Walk West, knocked off California breds April 29. He earned $31,200 for a partnership that includes Patsy London, John Winters and Templeton Horses LLC and trainer Walther Solis.

Owned by breeder Budget Stable and trained by Janet Armstrong, K Court won going a quarter of a mile April 19 at Santa Anita. The son of Doneraile Court out of the Smokester mare Olivia K banked $21,000 for the victory by a head.

Moreno’s Mine was third behind Amarish in his initiation for GEM Racing Stable and trainer Eric Guillot. The Mineshaft colt out of the Langfuhr mare Fi earned $6,240.

Run to Ground earned $3,120 for a fourth place finish in his debut April 29. The Reddatore colt out of the Swiss Yodeler mare Serena’s Echo was defeated one length by Lovmeister after having a clear lead with an eighth of a mile to run. He’s owned by Raymond Taylor and trainer Rafael DeLeon.

The son of Forestry and the Pleasant Colony mare Belvedere Miss is trained by Sadler for owners Gary and Cecil Barber.

From inside out, the field for the Willard L. Proctor Memorial: Lovmeister, Jose Valdivia, Jr. rides, 120 pounds; Forest Boy, Joe Talamo, 115; K Court, Eswan Flores, 115; Run to Ground, Martin Garcia, 115; Moreno’s Mine, Agapito Delgadillo, 115; Amarish, Edwin Maldonado, 120; Just Call Me Al, Rafael Bejarano, 120 and Undrafted, Julio Garcia, 120.
