A quintet of runners earned triple-digit BRIS Speed ratings last weekend, easily headed by Tom Fool Handicap (G3) hero Do Share.

This time around the bay gelding romped by 6 1/2 lengths under jockey Reylu Gutierrez and was awarded a 116 BRIS Speed figure for the dominating triumph at Aqueduct on March 9.

Aqueduct also saw the winners of two of its other three stakes on March 9, the Gotham Stakes (G3) and Stymie Stakes, breakthrough with triple-digit BRIS Speed numbers. Grade 2 victor Vino Rosso made his first start since last August’s Travers Stakes (G1) a winning one in the Stymie, earning a 104 Speed figure. Haikal garnered a 102 Speed rating, and earned points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby, for his one-length score in the Gotham.
