Darby Dan Grad Looks to Spring Upset in BC Turf Sprint
RSS Feeds Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Lightly raced Spring to the Sky looks to spring an upset in this Saturday's $1,000,000 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1). 

The 4-year-old son of Langfuhr from a daughter of Darby Dan's Foundation mare and Breeders' Cup champion Soaring Softly, is as regally bred as any in the field, yet enters the Turf Sprint somewhat under the radar.
 
A stakes winner over 6 furlongs on the grass at Belmont as a 3-year-old, he has won or placed five times in his last seven starts, all at seven furlongs or less, including a close third last time out in the $150,000 Woodford S. (G3) at Keeneland.
 
Bred by Phillips Racing Partnership, Spring to the Sky was foaled, raised and sold by Darby Dan. He has compiled a record of 13-3-3-2 and $212,150 for owner Anthony McCarthy and trainer Bruce Brown, with four stakes wins/placings. He will break from post 11 in the 6 1/2-furlong Turf Sprint under Hall of Fame rider John Velazquez.
