Confessing showed an impressive turn of foot as Phoenix Thoroughbreds’ filly romped away to win at Kentucky Downs on Thursday, September 10.
The daughter of Scat Daddy was returning to the unique turf track almost a year to the day since winning over the same course and distance to break her maiden tag. And it was a case of Deja Vu with Steve Asmussen’s charge putting in a very similar effort, charging late and pulling away from the field late on. Her record at Kentucky Downs now reads two wins from two starts.
Partnered by Joel Rosario, Confessing was anchored towards the rear of the field in the early stages while looking comfortable with the pace on being set by the leaders. Travelling through the cambered corners, Rosario moved the filly closer to the sharp end of the action. After briefly being short of room on the turn for home the four-year-old was soon in the clear and once she had daylight in front of her there was no doubting who the winner would be. The final margin of victory; an eased down two and three-quarters of a length.
