2010 King's Bishop Stakes

If there was any question about who is the top 3-year-old sprinter on the East Coast, Discreetly Mine answered it emphatically Aug. 28. The son of Mineshaft rolled through blistering fractions on the speed-favoring Saratoga main track and held off a pair of rivals to win the $250000 NetJet King's Bishop Stakes for his first grade I win. Johnny Velazquez, who earned his third victory in the prestigious race, piloted Discreetly Mine to a 1 1/4--length win in a final time of 1:23.16 for seven furlongs on the fast dirt. It was the third consecutive graded stakes win for the bay colt, who has found a home sprinting after cutting back from a failed try in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) in May. Todd Pletcher trains the homebred for E. Paul Robsham Stables.
