ANOTHER GSW FOR FIRST SAMURAI’S JUSTIN PHILLIP

Zayat Stables’ JUSTIN PHILLIP, by FIRST SAMURAI, rallied in the stretch to win the Count Fleet Sprint H.-G3 at Oaklawn Park.  The 5-year-old stalked the pace, then ran down his competition to win by three-quarters of length going the six furlongs in 1:09.63.  Trained by Steve Asmussen and ridden by Richardo Santana Jr., JUSTIN PHILLIP has won or placed in 17 races.  He previously won the Woody Stephens S.-G2 at Belmont Park and was runner-up in the King’s Bishop-G1 at Saratoga.

A $400,000 Keeneland September sale yearling, JUSTIN PHILLIP was bred in Kentucky by Overbrook Farm.  Out of the Cryptoclearance mare Avaknowsthecode, he is a half-brother to three Graded stakes winners, including Claiborne stallion and undefeated Graded stakes winnerALGORITHMS.
