Description: Bayern (KY) DK B/, C, foaled May 3, 2011 (Offlee Wild - Alittlebitearly, by Thunder Gulch) gets the lead and never lets it go in a brilliant display of controlled speed to win the 1 1/8 miles $1 million Grade I Haskell Invitational Stakes at Monmouth Park July 27, 2014. Jockey Martin Garcia shipped east with this frequent flyer from their California base, got the lead immediately out of the gate and was able to save ground along the rail around the Clubhouse turn. Wildcat Red and Social Inclusion were his nearest competitors but they let him control the pace, Bayern was cruising and those two were constantly trying to catch him. The undefeated filly, Untapable, didn't have the best of trips and while she made a nice move around the far turn she was carried wide and didn't have anything left for the drive. Bayern won at will and drew off as the rider pleased to win by 7 1/4 lengths at the wire. Albano finished in 2nd, 7 /14 lengths in front of Wildcat Red in 3rd. Bayern is 4-1-1 from 7 starts and has earned $1,077,680 for his owner Kaleem Shah. He was bred by Helen Alexander. The Haskell is a Breeders' Cup 'Win and You're In' Challenge Series race and Bayern gets a berth in the Classic at Santa Anita this November 1st. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
