IMPRIMIS Closes to Place in Woodford S.-G2

Winner of the Grade 2 Shakertown S. here at Keeneland this spring, IMPRIMIS rallied and fought through traffic problems to place in the Woodford S.-G2. The 5-year-old son of BROKEN VOW broke from post two in a nine-horse field to race midpack early. Had to be held up a bit heading into the turn after the horse in front of him started to back up. He swung to the outside of that horse but still continued to race inside. Turning for home, IMPRIMIS found himself behind a wall of horses, was boxed in traffic and couldn’t find running room until inside the 1/8th pole and by that time it was too late but finished with effort. The final time of the race set a new course and stakes record. Lifetime record: 12-7-0-1, $434,548. O-Breeze Easy, LLC. B-Criag L. Wheeler. T-Joe Orseno.
