Shoplifted earned his first points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Challenge with his come-from-behind win in Sunday’s $400,000 Remington Springboard Mile S. at the central Oklahoma track (VIDEO).
The 2-year-old colt, who is owned by Grandview Equine, Cheyenne Stables LLC and LNJ Foxwoods, ran second in the Hopeful S. (G1) this summer and upped his earnings to $385,500 after Sunday’s big payday.
Shoplifted picked up 10 points toward a start in the 2020 Kentucky Derby (G1) and is currently fourth on the Road to the Kentucky Derby leaderboard.
Stuck behind horses for most of the trip, Shoplifted joined Embolden to take over the lead at the top of the stretch. Answer In joined the fray soon after, and the trio battled to the wire, with Shoplifted winning by a head over Answer In, and Embolden a half-length back in third.
Shoplifted is a daughter of leading sire Into Mischief and is out of Shopit, whose dam Shop Here is a sister to Grade 1 winner Miss Shop and Grade 2 winner Trappe Shot.
