Facing a field of mostly first-time starters with a trip to Royal Ascot on the line, NO NAY METS (IRE) (No Nay Never–Etoile, by War Front) was sharp from an outside gate and quickly in command into the turn of the five-furlong sprint. Mattingly (Bucchero) kept him honest with a pair of rivals right behind but coming off the turn, the 10-1 shot had another gear and only widened his winning margin close to the wire. With the win, No Nay Mets has earned an automatic start into one of six 2-year-old races at this year’s Royal Ascot meet happening from Jun. 20-24. His connections also earned a $25,000 travel stipend. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0.
