Description: Beach Patrol (KY) DK B/, C, foaled February 7, 2013 (Lemon Drop Kid - Bashful Bertie, by Quiet American) steps up to win his first stakes race with a hard fought victory in the 10 furlong $450K Grade I Secretariat Stakes on the 'firm' turf course at Arlington Park August 13, 2016. Jockey Florent Geroux and Beach Patrol set up a stalking position in third as Scissors And Tape went out to show the way around the first turn and up the back stretch. Long Island Sound tracked the leader in second. As they rounded the far turn, Scissors And Tape gave way as Beach Patrol and Long Island engaged each other for the lead. American Patriot moved up stoutly rounding that far turn along the rail and found himself with nowhere to run. Beach Patrol and Long Island Sound locked horns down the stretch with Beach Patrol getting a head in front at the line. American Patriot went around the tiring Scissors And Tape turning for home, found the rail entering the stretch, came to the outside at the furlong marker but could not get to the top two finishing third by 3/4 lengths behind Long Island Sound. Beach Patrol is 3-2-2 from 8 starts and he has earned $526,970 James Covello, Sheep Pond Partners, and Head of Plains Partners. He was bred by Nancy Shuford and he is being trained by Chad Brown.
