Capo Bastone's first starter, Hargus, wins at Keeneland by 2 1/2 lengths in :52.19 for 4 1/2 furlongs

Adena Springs' Capo Bastone, the Grade 1-winning son of Street Boss, sired his first winner from his first starter on Wednesday when 2-year-old colt Hargus won his debut in a 4 1/2-furlong maiden special weight race at Keeneland.

Trained by Wesley Ward for Danny Pate, the chestnut colt broke quickly from post 10 and was head-to-head with Odie until just inside the furlong marker, when he drew off impressively to score by 2 ½ lengths in 52.19 seconds over a fast main track.

Bred by J. D. Stuart in Kentucky, Hargus is the first foal out of the Put It Back mare Call My Lawyer, a five-time winner of over $100,000 and a half-sister to the stakes-placed filly Pistolina.

On the track, Capo Bastone was at his best capturing the Grade 1 King's Bishop S. at Saratoga during his 3-year-old campaign. He also finished second in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and Frontrunner S., both Grade 1 events, at 2, and finished his career with earnings of $731,756.

Capo Bastone currently stands for a fee of $4,000 live foal. For more information about Capo Bastone, contact Ben Walden at 859-987-1684 or visit adenastallions.com.
