BLAME’s Caveat Emptor romps & leads Claiborne-sired exacta in Kentucky Downs MSW

Caveat Emptor topped a successful day at Kentucky Downs for BLAME on Saturday when the 3-year-old broke his maiden by an impressive 5 ¼ lengths in a Maiden Special Weight.

The Joseph Allen homebred sat in midpack during the one-mile turf race until they entered the unique far turn. Moving up, Caveat Emptor was set for a run for the win – a run that came just outside the final furlong marker.

He grabbed the lead from the pacesetting Cleat (War Front) at that point and it was smooth sailing to his 5 ¼ length win from there – He lead home the Claiborne born, raised, and sired exacta in the lucrative maiden special weight.

His victory came three races before BLAME’S Grade 1-winning Abscond finished third in the Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf Stakes (G3).

Caveat Emptor is out of a half-sister to WAR FRONT’s two-time Group 1 winner Homesman and that one’s stakes placed full sibling War Cabinet, their dam also produced Irish champion U S Ranger.

Caveat Emptor’s third dam is the Grade 1 winner and top broodmare Andover Way, who is the dam of Grade 2 winner and successful sire Dynaformer. Andover Way is also the granddam of WAR FRONT’S Grade 1 winners Lines of Battle and War Flag in addition to Offlee Wild.
