Redicean battled with runner-up Arch My Boy, owned by Mrs. George Ohrstrom, trained by Richard Valentine and ridden by  Kieran Norris, in the last furlong and won by 3/4 lengths in 3:48.05 under a strong ride.

Virginia Lazenby Racing Stable's Help From Heaven, trained by Kate Dalton and ridden by Ross Geraghty, was third in the nine horse field.

Redicean''s last start was April 13 in Ayr, Scotland, in the CPMS Scottish Champion Hurdle, in which he place 11th.

 

IN 22 STARTS in England and Scotland, Redicean won seven times, mostly in handicaps, with one second and two thirds.

He now has career earnings of $146,986.

Young also has the morning line favorite in the G1, $150,000 A.P. Smithwick, Bedrock, who is another first time starter in this country.

The Smithwick will be contested tomorrow, July 25, at 12:45.

Owned by Irvin Naylor and ridden by Sean McMermott, Bedrock is making his first start this year after back-to-back stakes wins in Ireland for trainer Iain Jardine last year.

Naylor also has Sempre Medici, trained by Cyril Murphy and ridden by Darren Nagle, in the Smithwick as a very strong entry.

Show Court, trained by Arch Kingsley, won last year's Smithwick and, ridden by Barry Foley, is aiming for another upset win.

Leading trainer Jack Fisher has four entered, Peppau Le Pugh, Vosne Romanee, Gibralfaro and Hinterland.
