Bishops Bay (c, 3, Uncle Mo–Catch My Drift, by Pioneerof the Nile) put up a flashy 97 Beyer Speed Figure Feb. 18 on debut when defeating next-out ‘Rising Star‘ First Mission (Street Sense) and battled his way to his own ‘TDN Rising Star‘ seal of honor here, overcoming clipping heels going into the first turn, putting away a well-regarded leader in First Defender (Quality Road) and holding off the furious charge of his stablemate Demolition Duke (Good Magic) in the lane at 2-5 favoritism. The final time was 1:43.77.
