Forever Unbridled Wins Gr1 Personal Ensign Stakes
At Saratoga racecourse in the US, deceased US sire & former Arrowfield shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO bay mare Forever Unbridled (Unbridled's Song-Lemons Forever, by Lemon Drop Kid) upset two-time champion Songbird & Eskenformoney when finishing powerfully to score by a neck in the US$700,000 Gr1 Personal Ensign Stakes (9 furlongs) for 3YO+ fillies & mares. Forever Unbridled improved her record to 7 wins (including the Gr1 Beldame Stakes & Gr1 Apple Blossom Stakes) and 7 placings from 16 starts for US$2,086,880 in earnings. Trainer Dallas Stewart said Forever Unbridled would next attempt to defend her title in the Gr1 Beldame Stakes at Belmont Park on 30 September. "It's the most logical choice for her next race, especially since she won it last year," he told Blood Horse. Forever Unbridled is out of 2006 Kentucky Oaks winner Lemons Forever, making her a full sister to Gr1 winner Unbridled Forever.
