2YO BEST PERFORMANCE Wins Belmont Maiden Special Debut
A $300,000 Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream purchase by co-owner West Point Thoroughbreds, BEST PERFORMANCE pulled away late from the heavy favorite to win this $100,000 Maiden Special Weight at Belmont in her first start. With five solid works under her belt, the daughter of BROKEN VOW kept in close contact of the top three through the first part of this five-furlong sprint. She swung four wide turning for home, battled head-to-head with the the eventual runner-up in mid-stretch and proved best in the final sixteenth to get a one-length victory. Lifetime record: 1-1-0-0, $60,000. O-West Point Thoroughbreds and Tango Uniform Racing LLC. B-Mercedes Stables LLC. T-Christophe Clement.
