Dynamic Pricing wins the Edgewood Stakes

Last November, Dynamic Pricing ran down Way to Be Marie and won a maiden turf race at Aqueduct. With much more at stake, the same thing happened Friday at Churchill Downs, where Dynamic Pricing tagged Way to Be Marie three strides before the finish and won the Grade 2, $600,000 Edgewood by a half-length.

Chad Brown filled a hole in his résumé - there are not many - winning the Edgewood for the first time, but not with the horse most expected. Hard to Justify, the 2-1 favorite, pressed what appeared to be a strong pace but was cooked before the three-sixteenths pole, finishing ninth of 11 with no apparent excuse in this turf mile for 3-year-old fillies.

Hard to Justify had won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf in her most recent race, and Dynamic Pricing had been seventh March 9 in the Florida Oaks at Tampa Bay Downs, which helped produce an unusually robust $19.82 win mutual on a Brown-trained, Irad Ortiz Jr.-ridden, Klaravich Stable-owned turf filly.

“I don’t know why she didn’t like the turf over at Tampa,” Brown said. “She was quite far back and just wasn’t herself going down the backside, and I wasn’t quite sure why. Her first two races were good.”

The first of those two was the Aqueduct maiden, where Dynamic Pricing tracked pacesetting Way to Be Marie and reeled her in to win by a nose. Dynamic Pricing came back with a close third Feb. 3 in the Sweetest Chant at Gulfstream Park before taking a step back at Tampa.

Breaking from post 10 Friday, she got a great trip – and a strong pace at which to run – under Ortiz, who might have provided the winning margin when he was able to tuck Dynamic Pricing into the No. 2 path and get some cover midway around the first bend.

Dynamic Pricing earned a career-best 90 Beyer Speed Figure. Bred by Epona Bloodstock, she is the third foal of SHEMDA who was purchased by Badgers Bloodstock off The Aga Khan at Arqana
