Buy Sell Hold Prevails In Kentucky Juvenile

Kirk and Judy Robison’s Buy Sell Hold held off a late bid from Amberspatriot by a neck to win the 24th running of the $ 100,000 Kentucky Juvenile for 2-year-olds.

Trained by Steve Asmussen and ridden by Florent Geroux, Buy Sell Hold covered the five furlongs on a “good” main track in :58.33.

Favored McErin broke on top but was joined on the far turn by Buy Sell Hold. The two raced as a team until deep stretch when Buy Sell Hold inched clear with Amberspatriot rallying for second to finish a nose in front of McErin.

The victory was worth $ 60,140 and increased Buy Sell Hold’s earnings to $ 96,140 with two victories in two starts. Buy Sell Hold is a Kentucky-bred daughter of Violence out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Melody Lady.

Buy Sell Hold returned $ 5, $ 3.40 and $ 2.60. Amberspatriot, ridden by Paco Lopez, returned $ 7.80 and $ 4.20 with McErin, ridden by Julio Garcia, returning $ 2.60 to show.

Waki Patriot finished another two lengths back in fourth and was followed in order by Trickizar, Chateau, Just Be Frank and Go Chiva Go. Baytown Lex did not finish.
