Notes: While Competitiv e Edge won Saratoga s closing day G1 Hopeful S. three races earlier, Carpe Diem may have emerged as the day s best classic contender for conditione r Todd Pletcher. The son of Giant s Causeway launched his career three races after his more accomplish ed stablemate became a stakes winner and ran to his flashy looks and works. Sent to post as the 7/10 favorite, he sped to the lead from his rail post under Hall of Famer John Velazquez and set testing fractions of 21.88 and 44.90 while pressed by Louisiana Brown. When the latter threw in the towel, Carpe Diem fought off a challenge from fellow firster Ready for Rye and pulled away from that rival for a 2 -length score. The colt covered the 5 F in 1 03.99 and earned an 84 Beyer Speed figure plus 49,800for his victorious debut. Bred in Kentucky by Coffee Pot Stable, the chestnut is out of Rebridled Dreams, a daughter of Unbridled s Song. He was foaled on February 29, 2012, and is a half-broth er to 2010 Breeders Futurity winner J.B. s Thunder and to multiple English stakes hero and Group 3-placed Doncaster Rover. Carpe Diem initially sold for 550,000 as a Keeneland September yearling. Northwest Stud enjoyed a profitable pinhook when Stonestree t Stables LLC signed the 1,600,000 ticket, the co-highest , at the Ocala Breeders Sale Co. March sale of selected 2-year-old s in training. Stonestree t campaigns the colt in partnershi p with WinStar Farm.
