Animal Spirits Takes Adventurous Bourbon

Animal Spirits, trained by Al Stall Jr. and ridden by Robby Albarado, rallied from far off the pace to take the Bourbon, covering the 1 1/16 miles on a firm turf course in 1:44.24.

 

The race was marred when longtime leader and second choice Here Comes Frazier attempted to jump the inside rail approaching the sixteenth pole and launched jockey Julien Leparoux into the infield. Leparoux got up under his own power and rode the next race, finishing 10th aboard Super Espresso in the Juddmonte Spinster.

 

A 2-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Arch out of the Mr. Prospector mare Pennant Champion, Animal Spirits was second in his only start prior to the Bourbon. Sunday’s $90,000 check boosted his bankroll to $100,000.

 

Animal Spirits returned $18.60, $9.40 and $5.20. Coalport, ridden by Junior Alvarado, returned $11.80 and $7.40 with Lucky Chappy (IRE) finishing third another 1½ lengths back under Ramon Dominguez and paying $4.40 to show.

 

Completing the field in order were Splendiferous, Chalybeate Springs, Curfew Tower, Gold Megillah, Downtown Driggs, Burn the Mortgage, favored Monastic and Smart Ellis. Here Comes Frazier did not finish, but was on his feet after hitting the rail.
