A single graded Kentucky Derby 2012 route prep was run over the weekend and Mr. Bowling struck out twelve rivals in Saturday’s Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds.
Grade 3 Lecomte Stakes (1-21-12): 79 BSF (Mr. Bowling)
The Lecomte did not look strong from a visual standpoint and was run in a
mediocre 1:43.49. For final time comparisons, sophomore fillies covered
the same distance in the Silverbulletday Stakes with Believe You Can
stopping the clock in 1:42.34. Two races later, 3-year-old Atlantic
Titan broke his maiden in 1:43.42.
