Twinspired Continues on Derby Trail

Twinspired proved a deserving favorite when he captured the $50,000 WEBN Stakes at Turfway Park by 4 1/4 lengths on the night of Feb. 5.

In a field of a dozen 3-year-olds, R Fast Cat finished second by a head over Taptowne. Final time in the one-mile test was 1:41.57 on the Polytrack.

The 3-2 favorite ridden by Jozbin Santana put away Taptowne with a furlong to go and drew off to win impressively. This was Twinspired's first stakes win for his owners, Daniel Johnson's Alpha Stable, Harvey Diamond's Skychai Racing, and Sand Dollar Stable. The son of Harlan's Holiday  --Historical Drive, by El Prado, is trained by Mike Maker.

The WEBN Stakes is the second of three local preps for the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes (gr. III) at Turfway March 26, itself a prep for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I).
