Badge Of Silver Colt Sets US Track Record
US colt Silver Max (Badge Of Silver-Kissin Rene, by Kissin Kris) notched his 5th successive win & set a new track record when he blitzed his rivals by 6.75-lengths in the US$211,000 Listed Oliver Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YO at Indiana Downs. Silver Max (ridden by Victor Lebron for trainer Dale Romans) clocked 1min 33.8sec in defeating fellow colts Cozzetti (Cozzene-Lemon Drop Cello, by Lemon Drop Kid) & Travel Advisory (Stormy Atlantic-Fire Of Freedom, by Street Cry). Silver Max (a US$20,000 yearling at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale) took his record to 6 wins (also including both May's Gr2 American Turf Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Churchill Downs & Listed Classic Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Arlington Park, plus April's Gr3 Transylvania Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Keeneland) & 5 runners-up from 12 starts for US$505,464 earnings.
