Andthewinneris Runs to His Training in Castle & Key Bourbon

October 10, 2022

LEXINGTON, Ky.— Susan Moulton’s homebred Andthewinneris was the 10-1, co-sixth choice on the morning line for Sunday’s Castle & Key Bourbon (G2). By post time, he was the 4-1 favorite.

“I didn’t kill the price on him; he did,” trainer Wayne Catalano said Monday morning. “He was training like a monster and that was on the dirt.”

In winning for the second time in three turf starts, Andthewinneris took over at the eighth pole and cruised to a 2¾-length victory in the 1 1/16-mile race. His final time of 1:41.27 knocked more than a second off the stakes record that had stood since 1999.

The victory earned Andthewinneris a fees-paid berth into the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) to be run here Nov. 4.

A day later, Moulton and Catalano will be represented in the $2 million Qatar Racing Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) by Manny Wah, who earned his spot in the starting gate for that race with his victory Friday in the Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G2).
