Microrithms, a Baffert-trained son of Gainesway’s ALGORITHMS won his third allowance optional claiming in a row on August 29th at Del Mar.
Going five and one half furlongs on the dirt with Drayden Van Dyke in the irons, Microrithms (ALGORITHMS) dueled from the inside to the stretch, put away Little Juanito at the eight pole, then met the challenge from Desert Law. He then cleared the field, crossing the wire a length and a half ahead in a final time of 1:03.26.
Bred in Kentucky by William L. S. Landes, this son of ALGORITHMS is out of the Forest Wildcat mare, Javelina. He brought $38,000 as a yearling at Keeneland, then was purchased by Donato Lanni, agent as a two-year-old in training. He is owned by David Israel, Michael and Nadia Sigband, and John A. Shaw.
