Baytown Bear an electrifying first winner for Upstart
RSS Feeds Tuesday, July 7, 2020
Multiple graded stakes winner Upstart was represented by his first winner Tuesday at Indiana Grand when Baytown Bear romped to a 9 ¾-length victory in a one-mile maiden special weight for 2-year-old.

The gray/roan juvenile chased Onenightstandards through six furlongs, and then despite being floated very wide into the stretch when the pacesetter drifted out severely, drew away impressively in the final furlong to win geared down under the wire.

Baytown Bear is owned by McEntree Racing, Inc. and was bred in Kentucky by Airdrie's owner Brereton C. Jones. He is the second foal out of And You Can, who is a half-sister to Jones' Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Believe You Can.

Upstart won or placed in 10 graded stakes in his stellar career, retiring with more than $1.7 million in earnings. He has been one of the leading First-Crop sires at this year's 2-year-old sales, topping all freshman sires by median price and ranking third by average, at $130,555, more than 13 times his stud fee.
