More Maker in Pegasus World Cup Turf

Trainer Mike Maker had already saddled the first three finishers in the GIII William L. McKnight as well as the winner of the GIII Fred W. Hooper S. earlier on Gulfstream Park’s card, and he added his second GI Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational S. trophy as well-backed ATONE (g, 6, Into Mischief–Captivating Lass, by A.P. Indy) kicked home impressively from midpack to best GISW Ivar (Brz) (Agnes Gold {Jpn}) by a half length. He stopped the clock in 1:46.19. Speaking Scout (Mr Speaker) was third. The winner, bet down to 7-2 off a 12-1 morning line, most recently took an Aqueduct optional claimer going this distance Nov. 10. Acquired for $130,000 at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton July HRA sale after originally racing for his breeder Godolphin, the bay was fourth in this race last year amidst four other graded stakes placings. He was second in the GIII WinStar Mint Million S. at Kentucky Downs Sept. 10, and was eighth two back in Keeneland’s GI Coolmore Turf Mile S. Oct. 8. Ivar was second in that race. Sales history: $130,000 HRA FTKJUL ’21. Lifetime Record: 23-7-4-4.
