Within Reason, ridden by Martin Pedroza, took the lead of the six-furlong race from Bengal Lore coming out of the turn and the two colts pulled clear of the field as they dueled down the stretch, with Within Reason winning in 1:09 1-5. The winner paid $5, $3.40 and $2.20. Bengal Lore paid $3.80 and $2.40. Say Tomorrow paid $2.40 to show. A chestnut son of Five Star Day, Within Reason has won two of three starts for owner and trainer Brian Koriner. He earned $49,005 for the victory, taking his lifetime bankroll to 86,005. English Derby winner Motivator was ruled out of the Breeders’ Cup Turf and retired to stud after pulling up lame Saturday. The 3-year-old colt, trained by Michael Bell and owned by the Royal Ascot Racing Club, tweaked a muscle while training at Newmarket in Ascot, England, in preparation for next Saturday’s race at Belmont Park in New York. “It was nothing life threatening but it was enough to put him out of the Breeders’ Cup,” said Harry Herbert, racing manager for Royal Ascot. “We are all desperately disappointed because we felt he had a great chance of taking the race in America by storm.” In June, Motivator, ridden by Johnny Murtagh, won the Derby, England’s most prestigious thoroughbred race. That was the last of his four wins. center_img Spite the Devil repeats: Spite the Devil won the Empire Classic for the second straight year, beating Organizer by a length in the $250,000 feature at Belmont Park. Spite the Devil, ridden by Javier Castellano, covered 1 miles on a sloppy track in 1:50 4/5 and paid $20.40, $11.80 and $7 in the race for horses 3 years and older. Spite the Devil, a 5-year-old Devil His Due gelding, won for the first time in four starts this year and in his first race since finishing eighth in a nine-horse field in the Grade 2 Brooklyn Handicap on June 11. The victory was worth $150,000 for Elisabeth R. Jerkens, wife of winning trainer H. Allen Jerkens. Organizer returned $12.60 and $7.90, and Carminooch paid $6 to show. A real McDynamo: McDynamo bounced back to win a record third straight $200,000 Breeders’ Cup Steeplechase at Far Hills (N.J.) Races, beating Three Carat by nine lengths. Hirapour, last season’s champion jumper, was third. Understood finished fourth, followed by Mon Villez in the five-horse field, the smallest in the race’s 14-year history. McDynamo, an 8-year-old gelding, ran the 2 miles in 5:46.65, well off the course record of 4:53.80 set by All Gong in the 2000 race. McDynamo, who had lost five straight races since last year’s Breeders’ Cup Steeplechase, produced one of his best efforts in the Grade 1 race. “We had a little bit of rough season and he’s been beaten a few times this year but I always felt he had an excuse,” trainer Sanna Hendriks said. “I hadn’t given up hope. I felt he was the same horse he’s been.” McDynamo, ridden for the first time by Jody Petty, became the first horse to win the race three times while Hendriks equaled Jonathan Sheppard’s stakes’ record of three training victories. McDynamo, unbeaten in five races at Far Hills, went right to the front and led over all 14 fences. “He took the bridle and he did his job,” said Petty. McDynamo earned $110,000 for owner Michael Moran of Unionville, Pa. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
