Art Scene

Art Scene and Bettor’s Up, both bred, raised and sold as yearlings by Brittany Farms, swept Mohawk’s rich Simcoe Stakes for sophomore colt and filly pacers.

In last Saturday’s $162,838 colt division, Art Scene p,3,1:49.4 ($241,827) scored in a career best 1:49.4 just a week after finishing second by a nose to Downbytheseaside in the $500,000 Messenger Final at Yonkers. The $50,000 Lexington Selected Sale graduate has been finishing strong as of late and won by open lengths as the even-money race favorite.

The American Ideal-Lover Of Art colt is owned by trainer Tony Alagna along with In The Gym Partners, Americam Art Stable and Brittany Farms, and was driven by Tony’s go-to guy Scott Zeron.

Brittany will sell his Bettor’s Delight yearling half-sister Hip 337 Summer Charm (Pedigree | Video) at the upcoming Lexington Selected Sale.

In the $163,872 filly division, Bettor’s Up p,3,1:49.4 ($535,154), by Bettor’s Delight-Fresh Idea, showed her affinity for Canadian soil as this year’s $440,000 Fan Hanover winner rolled to a 6 1/2-length tour de force in 1:50 flat.

Plucked by trainer Scott McEneny for a now-bargain $15,000 at the 2015 Lexington Selected Sale, she is owned by Bradley Grant, Teresa Davidson and Michelle McEneny and was driven by Doug McNair.

One of Brittany’s 14 Captaintreacherous yearlings that will sell this fall is Bettor’s Up’s half-brother, Hip 67 Shipshape (Pedigree | Video).
