Point of Entry's Unbeaten Analyze It Wows Again in Transylvania S. (G3)

William H. Lawrence's Analyze It never looked anything less than the victor in Friday afternoon's...

William H. Lawrence's Analyze It never looked anything less than the victor in Friday afternoon's Grade 3 Transylvania Stakes at Keeneland, settling just off the pace and storming home to a 5 1/4-length triumph at odds of 4-5. The 3-year-old son of Point of Entry, ridden by Jose Ortiz, covered 1 1/16 miles over the yielding turf course in 1:45.60. Unraced since November, Analyze It has now won all three of his lifetime starts for trainer Chad Brown.

Watch the Transylvania Stakes

"This horse has all the clues you look for if you want to train top racehorses," said Brown. "He has the ability and the mind. He's just so easy around the barn—easy to work with, easy to train. But when he gets out on the track and gets in that gate, a switch goes off, and he's such a fierce competitor."

Leaving from the outermost stall in the field of 12 sophomores, Analyze It demonstrated his adjustability by briefly turning on, then back off to gain a good position crossing under the wire for the first time. He ended up just two paths off the rail in about fifth around the first turn.

Winging away out front, Beer Pressure led with a six-length advantage through mild fractions of :24.30, :48.83 and 1:15.21. Approaching the far turn, the field began to catch up to that leader, the closest being Dragon Drew and Tap Daddy. Analyze It coolly moved up into third, angling out to the three-path, and he and Dragon Drew were on even terms as they turned for home.

Though he darted toward the rail sharply while changing leads, Analyze It drew off convincingly down the stretch to win under wraps by 5 1/4 lengths. Captivating Moon was up late from the back of the field to finish second.

“Chad drew (a plan) perfect for me,” Ortiz said. “He said hopefully two or three horses would go and you can sit tight, third or fourth. And that's what I did. (Analyze It) relaxed very well. The fast pace helped me a lot. When I asked him to go, he went so well, so smooth. He's a really, really nice horse.”

“But when you have a horse that's supposed to be that much the best, another way to look at it is you can stay out of trouble that way,” Brown said. “I have a great jockey on the horse (Jose Ortiz) and my team's done a terrific job with this horse. It's a really good win for the home team. This horse was raised just miles from here at Mill Ridge Farm. (He's a) Keeneland sale grad. Pete Bradley, who bought the horse for us, has a big business here in Lexington so I feel it's a huge win for the home team.”

Bred in Kentucky by P. Headley Bell, Nancy Bell and NATO, Analyze It was purchased by William H. Lawrence for $130,000 yearling at the Keeneland September sale. He then brought $190,000 at OBS in March, and made his first start a winning one at Belmont Park in October. In November, the colt dominated the G3 Cecil B. DeMille Mile at Del Mar by 4 1/4 lengths. Overall, his three-for-three record boasts earnings of just under $200,000.

"We really love this guy. Each time he runs, he could be something really special," said Lawrence. "You take it one race at a time, but we were really looking forward to today. And he won with not much effort. We've been lucky to have a lot of great horses and ... this guy is as good as anybody."

Analyze It earned a 97 Beyer Speed Figure, the highest by a three-year-old on turf in 2018. The effort prompted Daily Racing Form's Dan Illman to tweet: "From a pure ability standpoint it appears he is one of the best 3-year-olds in the country regardless of surface."

Analyze It also posted the highest turf Beyer Figure by a juvenile in 2017.

Updated December 31, 2017

Point Of Entry is out of the terrific Seeking the Gold mare Matlacha Pass and is the late, great Dynaformer’s most accomplished son at stud. His first four dams, going back to champion sprinter Gold Beauty, are all Grade 1 winners and/or Grade 1 producers. 

Point of Entry’s first stakes winner, the Adena Springs-bred Glamanation, is out of a mare by the Blushing Groom grandson Orientate (by Mt. Livermore). Dynaformer combined with Blushing Groom to produce eight stakes winners including major Grade 1 winners on two continents - Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro and Melbourne Cup hero Americain. Barbaro is out of a daughter of Carson City (dam by Blushing Groom), also the damsire of Point of Entry’s $515,000 colt at the 2017 Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up sale.

Point of Entry's MGSW Analyze It is out of a daughter of Consolidator, who's by Storm Cat out of a Blushing Groom granddaughter. This makes daughters and granddaughters of Giant’s Causeway (by Storm Cat out of mare by the Blushing Groom son Rahy) especially interesting for Point of Entry. Giant’s Causeway’s second dam is by Roberto and there are now at least 10 stakes winners out of his daughters showing a Roberto double within five generations. 

Dynaformer sired at least nine stakes winners and two Grade 1 winners from mares carrying Storm Cat within five generations. Seeking the Gold also clicked with Storm Cat as there are now at least 44 stakes winners showing Seeking the Gold on the top half of the pedigree and Storm Cat on the bottom.

Dynaformer showed a strong affinity for In Reality, particularly through Relaunch, the broodmare sire of his G1W Starrer and G3W Pommes Frites and the second damsire of his G1W Star Billing. The Valid Appeal branch of the In Reality broodmare line has also produced a high degree of quality when crossed with Roberto-line stallions, namely G1W Collect the Cash (by Dynaformer) and Breeders’ Cup Champion Perfect Sting (by Red Ransom).

Daughters of Ghostzapper (dam by Relaunch) are particularly promising for Point of Entry especially given Ghostzapper’s considerable success as a sire with Roberto-line mares. Ghostzapper’s G1W Contested is out of a mare bred Roberto over Seeking the Gold and he’s had other top level success with Dynaformer (G1W Stately Victor, etc.) and Seeking The Gold (G1W Better Lucky, etc.). There are 65 stakes winners combining Roberto and Deputy Minister including Dynaformer’s G1W Brilliant Speed. Mares by Ghostzapper’s sire Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister, dam by Blushing Groom) are similarly intriguing for Point Of Entry. Mares by Ghostzapper's half-brother City Zip (by Carson City) are also highly promising.

Mares from the Danzig branch of the Northern Dancer line are worth considering for Point of Entry and the second dam of his SP Devine Entry is out of a mare by the Danzig son Belong to Me. There are over 340 stakes winners that show Roberto on the top side of the pedigree and Danzig on the bottom. Dynaformer has sired at least nine of those, five group/graded, including G1W Karlovy Vary. 

Devine Entry is out of a mare by the Gone West stallion Elusive Quality. There are over 200 stakes winners that show Seeking the Gold on the top half of the pedigree and a return of Mr. Prospector on the bottom. The Fappiano, Gulch, Machiavellian/Street Cry and the aforementioned Carson City & Gone West branches are all well-represented as are mares by the wealth of stallions bred on the A. P. Indy/Mr. Prospector cross. The second dam of Analyze It is by the Fappiano grandson Unbridled's Song out of an A. P. Indy daughter.
