In Trouble tops Spendthrift stallion exacta in G2 Futurity S.

Sunday, September 29, 2013

In Trouble (Tiz Wonderful) hit the wire first in the $200,000 Futurity S. Sunday at Belmont Park, followed soonafter by Corfu (Malibu Moon) for a Spendthrift stallion 1-2 finish in the Grade 2 contest for 2-year-olds.

In Trouble's win put Tiz Wonderful over the $2 million mark in progeny earnings this year, putting him in seventh on the 2013 Second Crop Sire list. In Trouble, who is undefeated in two starts, was one of three 2-year-old winners this weekend by his sire, whose other two victors came in maiden special weight affairs at Santa Anita.

The six-furlong Futurity ended up a two-horse battle between Corfu and In Trouble. Corfu flew through the first half-mile in :44.75, with In Trouble a length and a half behind. In Trouble began to cut into the lead at that point, finally wresting the top spot away around the sixteenth pole, going on to win by 2 1/4-lengths in 1:09.64.

"Having done this a long time, I was looking forward to today," winning trainer Tony Dutrow said. "I was feeling that we have a talented horse and I'm not surprised at what I saw. I wasn't predicting this, but I'm not surprised. He's pretty good."

Dutrow said In Trouble will point for the Nashua Stakes (G2) Nov. 3 at Aqueduct Racetrack.

In Trouble is owned by the simply-named Team D. The Kentucky-bred bay colt was sold for $120,000 at the OBS Spring Sale of 2-year-olds this April.
