Carrier Landing Scores on Class Hike for Claiming Venture
Streaking sophomore colt Carrier Landing (Tale of the Cat) earned his fourth-straight win and first for Franklin Ave. and trainer Jason Barkley Saturday at Churchill Downs. Scooped up for just $16K out of a very visually impressive victory over older N3L opponents May 9, he bounced out of that race excellently and we wheeled him right back in a $50K starter allowance for 3-year-olds. Breaking from the rail, the gelding traveled beautifully throughout—except for when he bounced off the rail—and sliced his way through a tight spot to get up late under hot-handed Corey Lanerie. This was the first win (from five starters) for our first claiming venture. Congrats to all co-owners! Click for Chart | Video.
