One more slot in the gate for the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic got filled Saturday as KINGSBARNS (c, 4, Uncle Mo–Lady Tapit, by Tapit) took the GI Stephen Foster Stakes at Churchill Downs. Perfectly positioned through mild fractions from third, the $800,000 FTFMAY grad made a powerful bid to the front off the far turn, took over just past the quarter pole and refused to be run down late to get the win. Pyrenees (Into Mischief) and Skippylongstocking (Exaggerator) completed the trifecta. Lifetime Record: 9-6-2-0.

O-Spendthrift Farm; B-Parks Investment Group, LLC; T-Todd Pletcher. Sales History: $800,000 2yo ’22 FTFMAY, $250,000 ylg ’21 FTSAUG.
