Son of Repriced dominates Kent S. (G3)
RSS Feeds Sunday, September 06, 2009
No Inflation, a 3-year-old son of Repriced, made his first stakes win a big one, streaking well clear of his rivals in the stretch to score an eye-catching 6 ¼-length victory in the $250,000 Kent S. (G3) on Sept. 5th at Delaware Park.

Under Rosemary Homeister, No Inflation broke on top of the field and set the early tempo in the nine-furlong turf event, comfortably bounding along through an opening half-mile in 48.35 seconds. The field remained tightly-grouped until they hit the far turn – and then No Inflation revealed his superiority. He quickly spurted clear with an impressive burst turning for home and opened up several lengths on the field.

The finish was as dominating as it gets on the grass, as No Inflation continued to draw off with every stride, hitting the wire all alone in near-course-record time of 1:48.29 on firm going. It was just four one-hundredths of a second off the existing record of 1:48.25. The performance earned a 99 Beyer Speed Figure.

Trained by Tom Proctor, No Inflation picked up his third win for owner and breeder Glen Hill Farm. The Kent was a breakthrough performance for the 3-year-old who has a pair of runner-ups in the American Derby (G2) and Arlington Classic S., as well as a third in the Jefferson Cup (G2), in recent starts. He increased his earnings to $319,803.
