A pair of Darby Dan raised and sold colts turned in solid performances on Oct. 30, highlighted by Jersey Town's runner-up finish in the Grade 3 Bold Ruler H. at Belmont Park.

In the $100,000 Bold Ruler, Jersey Town had to go three wide around the turn while moving up from the fourth spot, and was forced even wider coming into the stretch, but still moved into second with a furlong to go, and held on gamely to be second to the top-class older horse Bribon (FR).

This was the fifth career stakes placing for Jersey Town, who is 4-5-1 in 11 career starts, earning $244,001.

Jersey Town, a 4-year-old colt out of the Belong To Me mare Jersey Girl, was bred and is owned by longtime Darby Dan client Charles Fipke, who also owns the Darby Dan stallion Tale of Ekati.

Also on Saturday, the 2-year-old Bluegrass Bull looks like a budding star with a dominating 4 1/4-length victory in an entry-level allowance race on the turf. Despite breaking a step slow in the 8 1/2-furlong contest over a course rated “good”, Bluegrass Bull was in second after four furlongs, moved to the front just before the entering the stretch, and drew off in the final furlong.

Bluegrass Bull, who Darby Dan sold in the 2008 Keeneland Nov. breeding stock sale for $100,000, in now 2-for-4 lifetime and was also third in the Seacliff S. at Calder.

The dark bay/brown colt is owned by WinStar Farm and was bred in Kentucky by the Il Paralupo Srl. Out of the Irish mare La Gomera, Bluegrass Bull comes from the same family as Grade 1 winners Caffe Latte and Sharp Belle.
