Lord Nelson’s first winner rolls to 7 ¼-length victory
July 2, 2021
Spendthrift Farm freshman sire Lord Nelson was represented by his first winner July 2 at Ellis Park when the 2-year-old colt Bueno Bueno romped by 7 ¼-lengths in a 5 ½-furlong main track contest.
Owned by Calumet Farm and trained by Jack Sisterson, the flashy chestnut went right to the front from the start and was never headed. He shook clear from On Spot at the top of the stretch and drew away with authority in the final furlong to win in a canter.
Bueno Bueno was bred in Kentucky by Mike Abraham and is out of the Bertrando mare Multitasker, who is a half-sister to the 2013 champion 2-year-old colt Shared Belief, who earned nearly $3 million in his career.
Lord Nelson, who stood the 2021 season for $10,000 S&N, holds the six-furlong record at Del Mar and won three consecutive Grade 1 races during his 4-year-old campaign. His next starter will also be at Ellis Park on July 4th in a maiden special weight race on the turf.
