Global Campaign prevails in Peter Pan S. (G3) for first stakes win
Saturday, May 11, 2019
WinStar Farm's and Sagamore Farm's Global Campaign took the $300,000 Peter Pan S. (G3) Saturday at Belmont Park, setting up the 3-year-old colt for a potential run in the Belmont S. (G1) a month from now.

Also bred by WinStar, Global Campaign kicked off his career in January at Gulfstream Park, scoring impressively at first asking then in a February allowance race at the same track. After a fifth-place effort in the Fountain of Youth (G2), the son of Curlin got a brief break before getting back on track in the Peter Pan.

Federal Case shot to the lead, and Global Campaign tracked him through the first half-mile in a solid :46 seconds. After six furlongs in 1:10.16, Global Campaign rolled by the pacesetter and opened up a clear lead in mid-stretch. Sir Winston made a belated rally, but came up 1 1/4-lengths shy of the winner.

The final time of 1:46.71 for the nine furlongs on the main track was good for a lifetime-best Beyer Speed Figure of 101.

"It went quicker than we thought it would,” winning trainer Stanley Hough said. “We didn't want to end up in a duel, but it looked like he did it pretty comfortably. He missed some training after the Fountain of Youth, so [the distance] was a concern, but we did want to go one turn." 

Global Campaign has now won three of four starts and earned $228,480. He is out of the top-class A.P. Indy mare Global Trot, whose three foals to race are all black type winners: besides Global Campaign, her other offspring are millionaire Bolt d'Oro who won the Del Mar Futurity (G1) and FrontRunner S. (G1), and Sonic Mule, a two-time stakes winner who is still in training.
