Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence’s Sum of the Parts earned a spot
in the starting gate for the $1.5 million Breeders’ Cup Xpressbet
Sprint (G1) with a repeat victory in the $200,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden
Trained by Tom Amoss and ridden by Leandro Goncalves, Sum of the
Parts held off Laugh Track by 1¼ lengths and covered the six furlongs on
the main track in 1:09.56. The victory was worth $120,000 and increased
Sum of the Part’s earnings to $716,513 with a record of 15-6-2-0. Sum
of the Parts is undefeated in three starts on Keeneland’s main track.
Sum of the Parts was first out of the gate in the field of 12 and was
pressured early by Jasizzle through a first quarter-mile in :22.51. Go
Blue Or Go Home took up the chase on the far turn but never could get by
the leader who held off the late charge of Laugh Track to prevail.
Sum of the Parts is a 4-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Speightstown out of the Slew’s Royalty mare Enjoy the Moment.
Sum of the Parts returned $27.20, $12.60 and $6.80. Laugh Track,
