Data Link put in a strong late charge to nail Turallure right on the wire in Friday’s Maker’s 46 Mile (G1) at Keeneland to win his first Grade 1 event for Stuart Janney III and trainer Shug McGaughey.
Data Link rallied from last under Alex Solis to collar Turallure late and covered the one mile over firm turf in 1:34.31. The victory was worth $180,000 and increased Data Link’s earnings to $315,500 with a record of 10-5-0-1.
The winner is a 4-year-old homebred son of War Front out of the Known Fact mare Database. Turallure finished second and Doubles Partner wound up a troubled third.
