Charting a consistent if unremarkable course heading into Saturday’s GIII Claiborne Swale S., Courtlandt Farms’ General Jim (Into Mischief–Inspired by Grace, by Curlin) exploded from off the pace, collaring favored Super Chow (Lord Nelson) late en route to a length score in 1:23.34 in the seven-furlong test. Sent off at 8-5, the $850,000 KEESEP graduate was getting blinkers on for the first time since a fourth-place finish in Gulfstream’s Mucho Macho Man S. last time out Jan. 1. Lifetime Record: 6-3-0-2, $229,033. O-Courtlandt Farms; B-Fifth Avenue Bloodstock & Centerline Breeding (KY); T-Shug McGaughey.
