WinStar Farm's General Election captured his second graded stakes with a come-from-behind victory in the $110,400 Jefferson Cup (gr. IIIT) for 3-year-olds at Churchill Downs Sept. 28.
General Election would not be denied his first graded stakes win May 25 when the 3-year-old Harlan's Holiday colt held off a late charge from Admiral Kitten to win the $150,000 Arlington Classic Stakes (gr. IIIT).
Jockey Albin Jimenez guided WinStar Farm's General Election past a melee at the start and avoided trouble in the stretch to bring the colt home a 13-1 winner in the $75,000 John Battaglia Memorial Stakes at Turfway Park.
