UPSTART Places in Breeders’ Cup Juvenile-G1

Coming out of a runner-up finish in the G1 Champagne S., UPSTART recovered from a bumping incident at the top of the lane to place in the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile-G1 at Santa Anita. Making only his fourth start, the 2-year-old son of FLATTER swung four wide on the final turn, lodged a challenge between foes near the top of the stretch, bumped with another, but recovered and ran on strongly to the wire, missing the runner-up spot by a nose.UPSTART has now won or placed in all four starts, including a 5 1/4-length debut win and a one-length win in the $200,000 Funny Cide S., both at Saratoga.
