Goodtimehadbyall Wins Churchill Feature

Merrill Scherer, Dan Lynch and Ken Sentel's Goodtimehadbyall rallied furiously down the Churchill Downs stretch and got up in the final jump to take the $61,962 Friday evening allowance feature by a neck over Philippe.

Goodtimehadbyall rated toward the back of the field of nine, ahead of only In the Beat, through opening fractions of :22.76 and :45.38 set by Closerwalk and Maximus Ruler. A 4-year-old gelded son of Quiet American, Goodtimehadbyall began to move toward the leaders as the field approached the top of the stretch and then swung nearly six wide under Miguel Mena.

Goodtimehadbyall charged down the stretch with a strong rally, but still had plenty of work to do at the sixteenth pole. The Merrill Scherer-trained Goodtimehadbyall sustained his courageous rally and prevailed in the final jump, completing the seven furlongs on the fast main track in 1:23.06.

The victory was worth $37,500 and improved Goodtimehadbyall's record to 5-5-4 from 29 career starts and earnings of $222,713.

Goodtimehadbyall returned $31.20, $13.80 and $4.60. Philippe, ridden by Manny Cruz, finished second and returned $11.60 and $5.60 with favored Shrill, under Corey Lanerie, another head back in third and returning $2.60 to show.

Racing continues Saturday with a special 11-race "Downs After Dark" Presented by Stella Artois and Finlandia Vodka racing program that features the stakes tripleheader of the $100,000-added Winning Colors (Grade III), $100,000-added Aristides (GIII) and $100,000-added Early Times Mint Julep Handicap (GIII). Post time for the first race is 6 p.m. (all times Eastern) and the Pick 6, which includes a carryover of $2,473, will begin on Race 6 at 8:30 p.m.
