How Do I Win, a 2-year-old son of Corinthian, answered the question to his name with an emphatic 17 1/2-length romp to break his maiden Oct. 19 at Belmont Park. The gray juvenile relished the sloppy surface, going right to the front and widening with every stride.
Bred in Kentucky by Russell Reineman Stable Inc., How Do I Win earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 90 after finishing the six furlongs in 1:11.38. He is owned by Repole Stable, who purchased him as a yearling for $190,000 at the Keeneland September sale in 2010.
How Do I Win is one of two winners out of Silver Crown, who won the Leggio Memorial Breeders' Cup S. and $272,486 in her career. Silver Crown is a half-sister to Powerful Punch, who took the Washington Park H. (G2) and Cornhusker H. (G3) and four other added money events.
Corinthian, with eight winners to his credit, is a top 10 first-crop sire. His top runner this year is Hunt Crossing, winner of the $132,362 NATC Futurity at Monmouth Park, who is being pointed to the inaugural Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint.
