Saturday, May 8, 2021
Victim of Love gave a repeat performance of her win the 2020 Vagrancy H. (G3) on Saturday at Belmont Park, surging past Sadie Lady at the top of the stretch to win by 2 1/4-lengths.

Victim of Love, 5, tracked the pace setter for a half-mile before taking command without being asked by rider Joel Rosario. She was kept to the task in the stretch to finish the 6 1/2-furlongs on a fast track in 1:17.27.

“Last year when she came here, she was a big price because she ran badly in the [one-mile] Nellie Morse when we tried her going longer,” said winning trainer Todd Beattie. “I tried to rate her, but she wasn't happy about that. She wants to be up there and involved early. That's her number. The distance is perfect. Six and a half or seven furlongs is ideal.”

The winner is owned by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds and is now 6-3-3 in 18 starts and has earned $408,199, with four stakes wins to her credit.

Victim of Love was bred by Daniel Burke and sold to her owner for $160,000 at the Keeneland September Yearling sale. She is one of Speightstown's 60 graded stakes winners and 122 black type horses lifetime.
