Uphold Breaks Maiden – 7/3/18

Uphold broke his maiden at second asking and his first race of this year. As expected, Uphold ran true to his breeding at a distance of 1 1/16th mile. He was the favorite at 9/5 odds.

Uphold ( Gabe)and Fernando shot out of the gate and headed toward the front and then settled off the pace along the backstretch.They hit the final 1/8th and pulled away to almost a 5 length lead as he crossed the wire.  Uphold’s breeding suggests that he should have an affinity for the turf as well, so hopefully we’ll get to see that soon.
