WinStar Farm, China Horse Club and SF Racing could have a future star in the 2-year-old colt Improbable, who is 2-for-2 following his 7 1/4-length romp in Friday's $100,000 Street Sense S. at Churchill Downs [WATCH RACE
The Bob Baffert trainee kicked off a Friday double for WinStar, who won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf with Bulletin one race later.
But it was Improbable who made the early statement. After being bottled up behind horses for the first half-mile, the chestnut colt moved three-wide on the turn, rolled past Trophy Chaser and flew through the stretch to finish the mile in 1:35.61 on a fast main track.
“I knew I’d be just behind some of the early pace setters,” jockey Drayden Van Dyke said. “I tracked the one that I thought was the better and when the hole opened up right after we passed the Big Board I moved him outside. He was very professional throughout the entire race.”
Improbable, a son of City Zip, broke his maiden in his Sept. 29 debut at Santa Anita Park and has now earned $89,520.
