Fifth Winner for Shanghai Bobby

Charging home from last to first, March X Press (2f Shanghai Bobby x Indian Rush, by Indian Charlie) made it look easy when winning on debut at Saratoga.

The Todd Pletcher trained filly missed the start clearly, but recovered to work her way through the field before ultimately forging clear to win the five and a half furlong turf maiden by a neck.

A $90,000 Keeneland September Yearling purchase, March X Press runs for Golconda Stables and is a three-quarter sister to stakes-winner Harlan’s Honor, who is by Shanghai Bobby’s sire Harlan’s Holiday from stakes-placed Indian Rush.

March X Press is the fifth winner for Champion 2YO Shanghai Bobby, who is also the sire of stakes-placed Bobby Ax and Spirit of Shanghai.
