Lemony Bay surges to vic­tory by 1 length

Sta­ble­mate Drift So­ci­ety fin­ishes in sec­ond place; Le Che­va­lier takes third

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SPORTS -

The Mary­land-based com­bi­na­tion of owner Bru­ton Street-US and cham­pion trainer Jack Fisher dom­i­nated the $30,000 My Lady’s Manor on Saturday when Lemony Bay surged to a 1-length vic­tory over his sta­ble­mate Drift So­ci­ety.

Michael A. Smith’s Le Che­va­lier took the third spot, 41⁄2 lengths be­hind Drift So­ci­ety and 73⁄4 lengths clear of pace­set­ter Grand Manan. Foyle, never close to the ac­tion, fin­ished fifth and last.

As ex­pected, Grand Manan went to the front im­me­di­ately in the 3-mile My Lady’s Manor, the first leg of the Mary­land tim­ber triple crown. Rid­den by Darren Na­gle, the speedy tim­ber stakes win­ner held a 5-length lead early, but he be­gan to fal­ter as Lemony Bay and Drift So­ci­ety made their moves com­ing to the last fences.

Lemony Bay, rid­den by Jeff Mur­phy, proved fastest to the line and pre­vailed in the drive over Drift So­ci­ety, rid­den by Bri­tish jockey Had­den For­est.

Lemony Bay com­pleted the 3-mile dis­tance in 5 min­utes, 51.80 sec­onds on firm turf.

Bru­ton Street-US is the rac­ing op­er­a­tion of Michael D. Hankin, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Bal­ti­more-based Brown Ad­vi­sory and a But­ler res­i­dent. His part­ners in Bru­ton Street-US are Charles Noell and Charles Fen­wick Jr. Fisher, the Na­tional Steeplechase As­so­ci­a­tion’s cham­pion trainer for the past five years, is based in Monk­ton near the race course.

Lemony Bay, an im­port from Eng­land, had fin­ished sec­ond in a My Lady’s Manor maiden tim­ber race last year in his U.S. de­but and then won a maiden race and two tim­ber al­lowance races as Fisher brought him along me­thod­i­cally to build his con­fi­dence over tim­ber fences.

The Mary­land tim­ber triple crown will con­tinue Saturday with the Grand Na­tional in But­ler and the $100,000 Mary­land Hunt Cup on April 29 in Glyn­don.
