CUGINO (c, 3, Twirling Candy–Adorable Miss, by Kitten’s Joy) was gunned from the gate and made every step a winning one, romping late to take the Audubon S. at Churchill Downs Saturday. Fourth in an off-the-pace race most recently in the GII American Turf S. over the local course at 1 1/16 miles on Derby Day, the 5-2 favorite rebounded with a strong effort under Flavien Prat. He’s previously been second in the both the Colonel Liam S. at Gulfstream March 2 and the GIII Transylvania S. at Keeneland April 5. Lifetime Record: 6-2-3-0.
