>Broadway Concert’s split figured to end on a sour note; she appeared to be tiring after a demanding trip, and rivals inside and out were threatening. But the daughter of Broadway Hall-Luscious Lindy dug in for Corey Callahan, trainer John Butenschoen and owner Bay Pond Racing Stable, holding off the rallying Mimosa Hanover by a half-length in 1:55.1, matching her life mark. Gin’s Tonic completed the ticket.

Broadway Concert was outside for the opening panel plus, but Callahan said that wasn’t a big issue.

“I kind of waited for everything to settle in the first eighth,” he said. “I did get a tiny break up the backside. She kept fighting. I had to urge her a little bit, but she wanted to get her nose up.”

In her McCarr division, Crann Tara looked the best on paper, so Tim Tetrick drove her accordingly, moving first-over at his leisure. The 1-5 favorite prevailed comfortably, defeating Itsgoodtobequeen by two lengths in 1:56.2, with Dangle Then Deke a distant third.

“I thought she was the best,” Tetrick said. “Her form’s been good, and some of the others aren’t at the top of their game. Coming first up doesn’t bother her; she likes wearing them down.”
