Late-Developing With Reason Continues Winning Ways

Sheikh Mohammed's With Reason, a gelded son of Nashwan who did not make his first start until earlier this year at age five, was strongly ridden by Frankie Dettori in the stretch to win Thursday's Charlton Hunt Supreme Stakes (Eng-III) at England's Goodwood Racecourse.

Trained by David Loder, With Reason completed the seven furlongs over "good dto firm" turf in 1:25.52. Monsieur Bond finished second, a length back, with favored Tantina third in the seven horse field.

Produced from the Law Society mare Just Cause, With Reason was bred in Kentucky by Gainsborough Farm. Since breaking his maiden by eight lengths while carrying 127 pounds in his career debut, With Reason has now won four of 11 career starts. In addition to the Supreme Stakes, he has won the Stan James Hungerford Stakes (Eng-III) and listed Betfair Stakes.
