Favored Mastercraftsman proved a smashing 4 1/2-length winner of the Boylesport.com Irish Two Thousand Guineas (Ire-I) over heavy going at the Curragh May 23.
Making her first start around two turns was no problem at all for Irish-bred Genuine Devotion, as she broke from the rail and led every step of the way to take the $171,750 Locust Grove Handicap (gr. IIIT) by a half-length July 6 at Churchill Downs.
Graded stakes winners Brownie Points, Bayou's Lassie, and Meribel headline a field of 10 entered for the $150,000-added Locust Grove Handicap (gr. IIIT), a one-mile event turf event for fillies and mares July 6, the closing day of the 52-day spring meet at Churchill Downs.
