Speightstown's Victim of Love storms to victory in Vagrancy H. (G3)
Sunday, June 28, 2020
Victim of Love earned her first graded stakes win in the Vagrancy H. (G3) at Belmont Park, forging her way through a driving rainstorm to defeat Come Dancing by 1 3/4-lengths.

The 4-year-old filly was a two-time listed winner before Saturday's score. She is Speightstown's 55th lifetime graded winner and one of his five graded winners in 2020 alone. With more than $5.1 million in progeny earnings this year, Speightstown is ranked fourth on the General Sire list.

Victim of Love was off a beat slow in the 6 1/2-furlong Vagrancy, but quickly recovered to press Jakarta through a half-mile in :45.49. She took the lead for good just outside the quarter-pole and was very strong through the stretch to stop the clock in 1:16.27.

“She broke a little bit behind, but with a tap on the shoulder, she jumped right there on the bridle,” said winning rider Jose Lezcano. “When I asked her, she really took off. My filly kept going the whole way around and never stopped. She gave me everything she had." 

Victim of Love has a record of 5-2-2 from 15 outings, with earnings of $279,829. She is owned by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds and was bred in Kentucky by Daniel Burke.

Pedigree notes from the TDN:

Victim of Love's dam Spacy Tracy, a Grade II winner at Aqueduct, is also responsible for GSW Benner Island (Speightstown) and MSW & MGSP High North (Midnight Lute). This is also the family of champion Eliza; Grade I-winning sire Dialed In; and Australian Group 1 winner Foxplay (Aus).
