Brad’s Time (g, 3, Not This Time–Fantasy Song, by Unbridled’s Song)

Brad’s Time (g, 3, Not This Time–Fantasy Song, by Unbridled’s Song) was a bit unruly in his first career start while unseating jockey Lane Luzzi behind the gate and was extremely reluctant to load. After a successful load and a clean break, he then pressed the early pace three wide. The chestnut son of Not This Time made a bid on the turn and drew out past the furlong marker. Brad’s Time continued to draw off smartly the final furlong under left-handed urging to win his debut by 4 3/4 lengths.
