Shoplifted turned in one of most eye-catching 2-year-old wins of the Saratoga meet on Saturday with a 4 ½-length maiden special weight tally for partners Cheyenne Stables, Grandview Equine and LNJ Foxwoods.
Making his career debut, the 2-year-old Into Mischief colt broke very well, then took back several lengths off a pair of dueling leaders. It wasn’t until he turned into the stretch that he found his best stride, striking the front inside the furlong marker to roll home in 1:03.99 for the 5 ½-furlongs (VIDEO).
Shoplifted was bred by Machmer Hall and Carrie & Craig Brogden in Kentucky and is from the immediate family of Personal Ensign S. (G1) winner Miss Shop and True North S. (G2) winner Trappe Shot.
Shoplifted, a $525,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, then an $800,000 buy after working an eighth in :10.1 at the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale in March.
