Reinvestment Risk Impressive In Saratoga Debut For Freshman Sire Upstart

Reinvestment Risk, trained by four-time Eclipse Award-winning trainer Chad Brown for Seth Klarman’s Klaravich Stables, romped to a 7 3/4-length score in a six-furlong maiden sprint on the main track in Saturday’s first race at Saratoga in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

A $280,000 purchase at the OBS March Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training, Reinvestment Risk won geared down at the finish, earned a 90 Beyer Speed Figure. He is the second winner from the first crop of foals sired by Upstart, a son of the A.P. Indy stallion Flatter standing at Brereton C. Jones’ Airdrie Stud in Midway, Ky.

Out of the Candy Ride mare Ridingwiththedevil, Reinvestment Risk wintered at Payson Park in Florida before shipping north to Monmouth Park for continued preparation. The precocious bay arrived at Saratoga in mid-July and breezed twice on the main track including a five-eighths work from the gate in 59.89 on July 26 ahead of his eye-opening win.

“He ran super. He trained super all spring down at Monmouth with my assistant Luis Cabrera, who had the horse early on,” said Brown. “We transferred him up here and we’ve always liked him. Our team here did a fantastic job with him. Mike Ryan, my partner in all our bloodstock work, picked him out from the De Meric consignment, another farm we use a lot. Everyone that’s touched the horse or been involved with him has raved about him, so I’m happy he lived up to that on his debut.”

Brown said the Grade 1, $250,000 Runhappy Hopeful, a seven-furlong sprint on Closing Day, September 7 could be in the cards.

“You’d sure think so,” said Brown. “If he comes out of the race well and especially having a race over the track, it looks like we’d have enough time between starts. I’ll talk to Mr. Klarman about it. It’s always exciting to have a nice 2-year-old.”
