Carried Interest Second in Return

Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s Carried Interest was sent off the 1-to-2 favorite in a field of six 3-year-olds in Sunday’s third race allowance feature at Gulfstream Park as he made his first start since finishing second in The Futurity (G2) at Belmont Park in late September.

Carried Interest broke sharply and was in a duel for the lead from the start on the inside under jockey Joel Rosario while posting fast fractions in the six-furlong dash, but gave way grudgingly as Cloud Nine Lumoni’s City of Weston edged by for a half-length decision under jockey Luis Saez.

“He ran huge,” said trainer Rick Violette, Jr. of Carried Interest’s game effort in defeat. “It was worst case scenario for him from the start after the layoff, being hooked from the start in fast fractions (22 2/5 and 44 3/5), but I was very pleased with his race. He tried to come back after the other horse got by him. I just wish we could have switched trips.

“I don’t have anything specifically picked out for his next race, whether it will be another allowance or a stakes, but he’ll be ready.” A chestnut son of Henny Hughes, Carried Interest was a $190,000 OBS March 2-year-old sales purchase and won his career debut in early July at Belmont in his only start before finishing second to Overanalyze in The Futurity. Sore shins sent him to the sidelines after just the two starts last year.

City of Weston is a roan/gray son of Holy Bull trained by Antonio Sano and was making his 14th career start and fourth of the meet. He ran well to finish second at 50-to-1 behind Merit Man in the Spectacular Bid Stakes on New Year’s Day and finished third and second in his last two races run under similar conditions.

City of Weston paid $20 for $2 to win and was timed the six furlongs in 1:09 1/5 over the ‘fast’ track. Rick Shanley’s Pro Prospect finished third, 4 ½ lengths behind Carried Interest after dueling with the favorite to the top of the stretch.
