Warrior's Reward colt shines in Smarty Jones S. (G3)

Warrior's Reward

Saturday, August 25, 2018
Axelrod's four-length victory in Saturday's Smarty Jones S. (G3) at Parx Racetrack in Pennsylvania marked the second straight graded stakes victory for the 3-year-old Warrior's Reward colt (VIDEO).

Gallant winner of the Indiana Derby (G3) last time out, Axelrod has now banked $540,925US for Slam Dunk Racing. Axelrod, who also finished second in the Affirmed S. (G3) in June, is one of seven North American stakes winners this year for Warrior's Reward.

Axelrod's path to Saturday's win didn't come easy. Tucked behind a trio of horses while going along comfortably through six furlongs in 1:13.04, Axelrod was under heavy restraint as he tried to find clear running. Forced to go five wide under Joe Bravo, he inhaled the field to hit the wire four lengths ahead of the field in a very impressive performance.

Bred in Florida by Hidden Point Farm out of the Elusive Quality mare Volatile Vickie, Axelrod is one of six winners out of his dam, including stakes-placed Trelawny.
