Shackleford’s Phantom Boss invaded from California and defeated a competitive field of eight in Saturday’s $125,000 Bashford Manor Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs, proving best by three-quarters of a length and stopping the clock for six furlongs in 1:10.78 under Rafael Bejarano.

Campaigned by Bada Beng Racing, Tom Beckerle, Terry Lovingier, and Amanda Navarro and bred in California by Terry Lovingier, Phantom Boss is trained by Jorge Periban.  The 2-year-old chestnut colt out of the Street Boss mare Bossy Belle broke his maiden by 2 ½ lengths June 2 at Santa Anita in his second career outing. With his win in the Bashford Manor, Phantom Boss improved his record to two wins from three starts and increased his bankroll to $131,850. 

“When we debuted this horse in open company and he only got beat a nose I knew we had something special," Periban said. "I told the owners that he could have a very bright future. Today’s performance was unbelievable.”
