Fulsome becomes a millionaire with WV Governor’s S. (G3) win
August 6, 2022
Into Mischief’s multiple graded stakes winner Fulsome added the $200,000 West Virginia Governor’s S. (G3) to his resume on Saturday and became racing’s newest millionaire with the win.
He was one of three stakes winners on Saturday for Into Mischief, topped by Life Is Good in the Whitney S. (G1), and joined by Provocateur in the $108,000 Jersey Shore S. at Monmouth Park.
Fulsome, a 4-year-old Juddmonte Farms homebred, was odds-on favorite in Saturday’s 1 1/16-mile contest. He was well-rated early under Paco Lopez, sitting about three lengths off the pace through the first six furlongs. He responded readily when asked, coming four-wide into the stretch and wearing down Derby House to win by 1 ¼-lengths over the sloppy going.
The victory upped Fulsome’s earnings to $1,091,428 and his record to 8-1-1 in 14 starts. His prior graded wins came in the Matt Winn S., Oaklawn Mile, and Smarty Jones S., all Grade 3 races.
Pedigree notes from the TDN
Fulsome is one of 111 stakes winners and 51 graded winners for his all-conquering sire. A half-brother to a pair of stakes runners, Fulsome is out of Flourish, a winning daughter of French SW & GSP Viviana, the dam of Sightseek, a seven-time Grade I winner, and Tates Creek, a dual Grade I winner on the turf. Flourish was bred to Into Mischief for 2023.
