No Nay Mets Continues Winning Ways In Colonial’s Exacta Systems Rosie’s S.

Undefeated on American soil, No Nay Mets showed promise on debut in taking Gulfstream’s Royal Palm Juvenile S. May 13 to earn a spot in the gate for Royal Ascot’s G2 Norfolk S. After selling for £800,000 at Goff’s London Sale just before the Ascot meet, he was soundly beaten in the Norfolk. The Irish-bred then returned to the East Coast with a dominant win as the heavy favorite in Monmouth’s Tyro S. last time out July 30.

Despite running over his fourth track in as many starts, No Nay Mets jumped as nearly a sure thing at 1-5 in the wagering and showed his customary early speed to set a pressured lead just ahead of King Kontie (Karakontie {Jpn}). Pushed through fractions of :21.45 and :44.06, he continued to find more and drew off readily when asked into the lane to sprint clear for the easy win.

Etoile, herself a group winner in Ireland, is a full-sister to last week’s GIII Mint Millions S. winner Ancient Rome. This is also the extended family of GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Pizza Bianca (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) who RNA’d for $3.45-million at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Mixed Sale. No Nay Mets is his dam’s first and only reported foal. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
