Taking home his first black-type win this Saturday at Fair Grounds, Legalize (Constitution) broke his maiden at second asking in gate-to-wire fashion by 1 1/2 lengths at Churchill Downs Nov. 25.

Sent on his way as the 8-5 second choice here, the chestnut raced to the outside of two others up the backstretch and clung to that spot around the far turn. At the top of the lane, the 2-year-old colt geared up, grabbed the lead at the eighth pole and never looked back to win by 2 3/4 lengths over ‘TDN Rising Star’ American Rascal (Curlin).

The winner’s dam produced a yearling filly by Gun Runner and visited Munnings for 2024. Second dam Summerly (Summer Squall) won the GI Kentucky Oaks, was the runner-up in the GI CCA Oaks and was third in the GI Mother Goose S.
