Bouncing right back from a stakes romp just three days earlier, Willy Beamin closed with a rush to capture the $500,000 King's Bishop (gr. I) in his graded stakes debut Aug. 25 at Saratoga Race Course.
The New York-bred gelding, a $25,000 by Rick Dutrow Jr. for owner James Riccio at Aqueduct Racecourse March 23, posted his sixth consecutive win while going off at odds of 11-1. Willy Beamin won the 1 1/8-mile Albany Stakes over state-breds by 6 1/4 lengths Aug. 22.
Ridden again by Alan Garcia, Willy Beamin won the King's Bishop, a seven-furlong event for 3-year-olds, by three-quarters of a length in a time of 1:22.02 on a fast track.
