Discreetly Mine - 2010 King's Bishop (G1)

In an electrifying display of speed, Discreetly Mine roared through an opening quarter-mile in 21.90 seconds and a half in 44.11 on his way to a 1 ¼-length victory in the 26th running of the Grade 1, $250000 King's Bishop on Saturday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course. With trainer Todd Pletcher instructing jockey John Velazquez Jr. to take the E. Paul Robsham Stables-owned son of Mineshaft to the front, the colt maintained a comfortable margin throughout and hit the wire in 1:23.16 for the first Grade 1 win of his career. Late-running Bank Merger finished second and Latigo Shore closed for third in the field of seven. Discreetly Mine paid $4.10 for a $2 wager as the even-money favorite in the field of seven, and with the victory now has a shot at year-end honors in the sprint division. "Any time you go 21, 44 and change for seven eighths, that's pretty demanding," Pletcher said after the race. "We were happy to hold on. We basically felt like we had to (go for the lead) the way the track was playing."
