John Sikura and Stetson Land and Cattle’s Spun Silver surged to the lead in the upper stretch and drew off to a 1 ½-length victory over Beyondallboundarys to take Thursday’s featured $49,600 Ingredient Resource Corporation Classic at Churchill Downs.
Trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan, Spun Silver covered the 6 ½ furlongs in 1:16.32 over a fast main track. A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred daughter of Grand Slam, Spun Silver increased her record to 4-2-1-0 and hiked her bankroll to $66,520 with Thursday’s $30,000 winner’s check.
Second choice in the field of seven fillies, Spun Silver returned mutuels of $7, $4.60 and $3.60. Beyondallboundarys, ridden by Leandro Goncalves, returned $5.80 and $4.40 with Elusive Jozi, ridden by Robby Albarado, finishing third and paying $3 to show.
Racing resumes Friday with an 11-race program that begins at 2:45 p.m. (EDT).
