PROMISE ME A RIDE (c, 3, Mastery–Promise Me More {SW & GSP, $171,866}, by More Than Ready), Triple Crown-nominated and sporting many of the same owners as his stablemate one race prior, ‘TDN Rising Star‘ Bishops Bay (Uncle Mo), raced from the second flight in this off-turf unveiling and rode the rail going into the first turn. Angled out into the four path and pulling for his head to take command, Promise Me a Ride was in control at the half-mile pole and going willingly at the three-eighths. Striding clear as Monomoy Girl (Tapizar)’s half-brother and even-money favorite Tapthedrum (Tapit) closed encouragingly from fourth to take runner-up honors by a head,  the dark bay gave his conditioner a daily double by 4 1/4 lengths. A half to MSP Warrior’s Promise (Warrior’s Reward) and SP North Arm Bay (Overanalyze), Promise Me a Ride has a 2-year-old half-sister by Classic Empire. Dam Promise Me More is due to Maclean’s Music for 2023. Sales history: $95,000 Ylg ’21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
