Belong To Me Adds US Black-Type
Former Widden Stud shuttler Belong To Me (Danzig-Belonging, by Exclusive Native) added a US black-type success when 6YO gelding Auction Watch (Belong To Me-Tarika, by Cozzene) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the US$75,000 Listed Alphabet Soup Handicap (8.5 furlongs on turf) at Philadelphia Park in Pennsylvania to take this race for the 2nd consecutive year. Auction Watch (ridden by Kendrick Carmouche for trainer Sanna Hendriks) scored by a nose from 4YO entire El Churruca (Monsieur Cat-Devil's Cocktail, by Devil's Bag) with a further neck to 5YO mare Always For Love (Not For Love-Elegant April, by Sun War Dancer). Auction Watch took his record to 6 wins & 5 placings (including June's Listed Da Hoss Stakes over 8 furlongs at Colonial Downs) from 16 starts for US$232,795 earnings.
