Breed them to run... Breed them to win

Another Turf Victory for Bootscutenboge

Bootscutenboge made it two victories in his last three starts last night, winning on the grass at Mountaineer Casino Resort and Racetrack for the second time in a month. With Eddie Jurado aboard again, the 4-year-old Two Step Salsa gelding stalked the leaders in third place on the rail until the top of the stretch, where he slipped through a narrow opening to vie for the lead, then pulled away late to score by nearly three lengths. He was clocked in an excellent 1:22.46 for the 7 furlongs. Bootscutenboge collected $10,672 from the $18,400 allowance purse and set his sire up to pass the $1.2 million mark in 2018 earnings either today or tomorrow.
