Paynter Colt Shellacs Foes in Rising Star Effort at Santa Anita

PAYNTER COLT SHELLACS FOES IN RISING STAR EFFORT AT SANTA ANITA

Mr Paytience survived a three-way speed duel and drew away powerfully in the stretch to graduate first out at Santa Anita and become the latest TDN Rising Star. Picked up for $90,000 at OBS March after breezing a furlong in :10 2/5, the bay broke alertly as a 61-10 proposition before finding himself embroiled as the inside marker in a pace scrum through a :22.53 quarter.

Cutting the corner and shaking off his pursuers soon after straightening, Mr Paytience poured it on the stretch, exploding away to graduate by 7 3/4 lengths in sharp time. Nice Haircut (Square Eddie) completed a one-two exacta for trainer Doug O’Neill. The winner’s dam is a half-sister to GSW Strike Dancer (Smart Strike). She produced a filly by Bluegrass Cat last season before returning to the same sire.
