Reagan’s Edge Wins Again For Competitive Edge
Competitive Edge’s Reagan’s Edge (3f Competitive Edge x Dayienu, by Sunday Break) left her backers in suspense until the final stride of the nightcap at Churchill Downs on Saturday when the filly put in an impressive run to win by a head.
Making her first start since late-March, the filly broke sharply in the 5½ furlong dirt race before dropping back to midpack. Riding the rail throughout the early parts of the race, she was swung to the outside in the stretch by Jose Lezcano and found another gear to chase down the leader.
The filly timed her run perfectly, collaring Call On Mischief just a few strides before the wire and sticking her head in front to register her second win in three starts. Trained by Cherie DeVaux for David Ingordo, Reagan’s Edge has never been worse than third for over $70,000 in earnings.
Bred by Mauk One Farm, Reagan’s Edge is one of three winners out of Dayienu. That mare is a half-sister to Grade II-placed Bushwhacked and Grade III-placed Call Provision from the family of Grade I winner Magnificent Song and Venezuela Champion 2-Year-Old Filly Reina Primavera.
Reagan’s Edge is one of 44 winners for Second-Crop Sire Competitive Edge, including four stakes winners and seven stakes horses overall.
