Mr. Money Extends Win Streak in Indiana Derby

Sent off as the 4-5 favorite to build upon his victories in the G3 Pat Day Mile and G3 Matt Winn, Mr. Money did not disappoint as he made his way to a convincing 2½ length score in the G3 Indiana Derby on Saturday. Breaking from the outside post in a field of 11, the Margaux starting and training grad stalked the pace from third while trying to avoid the riderless Eskenforit. Taking command in the stretch, Mr. Money was never seriously threatened under jockey Gabriel Saez, while scoring his fourth victory from nine starts. Trained by Brett Calhoun for Chester Thomas’ Allied Racing Stable, the win pushed his lifetime earnings to $773,220.  The bay son of Goldencents may appear next in the G1 Travers S. at Saratoga on August 24th.
