Engage returns stakes action to win $100,000 Bensalem S.
September 2, 2019
Into Mischief’s 4-year-old colt Engage has now won stakes at 2, 3 and 4 following Monday’s win in the $100,000 Bensalem S. at Parx, holding off a host of challengers to win the six furlong contest by about a length.
Winner of the Futurity (G3) at Belmont at two and the Gold Fever S. over the same track last year, Engage has also placed in three additional graded stakes and is 4-4-0 in 11 starts and has earned $499,080 for Woodford Racing LLC.
Making just his second start of the year, Engage was three-wide in third for the first half-mile, then took over in upper stretch and pulled away from the field, then won comfortably in 1:11.48 (VIDEO).
Engage was bred by Woods Edge Farm LLC and is out of the stakes-placed mare Nefertiti. He sold to his owners for $550,000 at the 2017 OBS March 2-year-old sale.
