Do Share came flying late to earn his graded stakes badge in the GIII Tom Fool H. The bay caboosed the field as defending winner Skyler=s Scramjet (Creative Cause) blazed through opening splits of :21.92 with Syndergaard (Majesticperfection) and Bavaro in tow. Improving his position while four wide on the backstretch, Do Share swept past the leading trio in the lane and cruised clear for a dominant victory. Life in Shambles got up for second over Bavaro.

"It was a great trip, talk about a great horse," said rider Reylu Gutierrez. "He just took me to the wire. Any rider probably could have won on him today. He was going at light speed today." He continued, "I'm lucky I had a nice pace to chase after. Studying the form, that was my idea coming into the race. Let him break, get a good warm up into him and try to catch whoever was fading. These horses were rolling early on and this horse ran really great." 

It was the first graded stakes win for Gutierrez, who will officially be a journeyman starting Sunday.

"My first open stakes for [Maker] was down in Gulfstream and now my first graded stakes win is for him here in New York, so I have to get a great Christmas present for Mr. Maker and his team," Gutierrez said. "They do a phenomenal job. [Agent] Jimmy Riccio is always scouting for the best horses possible for Jose [Ortiz] and myself. He deserves just as much credit as anybody. He just finds these horses anywhere and they help me get to the finish line. It's awesome." 

Do Share finished second in this race last year while under the care of trainer Linda Rice for owner Antonio Miuccio. Sent through the ring at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton July Sale after the death of his owner, Do Share was purchased by Three Diamonds Farm for $40,000 and sent to Mike Maker. Second to >TDN Rising Star= Uncontested (Tiz Wonderful) in a Laurel optional claimer Dec. 23, the gelding rallied to be fourth to that rival last time in the GIII General George S. at that Maryland oval Feb. 16.

Pedigree Notes: Do Share is the 41st graded stakes winner for his sire Candy Ride. His dam, MGSP You Asked, is also responsible for the now3-year-old filly Andyoushallreceive (Fed Biz), who summoned $225,000 from Samantha Siegel=s Jay Em Ess Stable at the Keeneland September Sale and was last seen finishing third in the Anoakia S. Oct. 14. You Asked produced the Fed Biz filly She Answered in 2017 and a Kantharos colt in 2018. She failed to get in foal to Distorted Humor for this season. The winner hails from the family of GI Kentucky Derby hero Orb (Malibu Moon); Argentinian champion Suggestive Boy (Arg) (Easing Along); and MGISW Coronado=s Quest (Forty Niner).
