Rogue Romance An Easy Winner of Sunday Feature

LOUISVILLE, KY (Sunday, May 20, 2012) - Catesby Clay's Rogue Romance took the lead from pacesetter Achaemenes at the eighth pole and increased his advantage from there to win the $59,522 Sunday afternoon allowance feature at Churchill Downs by a widening five lengths.

Rogue Romance, winner of the Bourbon (GIII) on the turf at Keeneland in his juvenile season, rated in third behind Achaemenes and Westshore through opening fractions of :23.66 and :47.92 and then moved into second ahead of Westshore soon after passing the half-mile pole. A 4-year-old chestnut son of Smarty Jones, Rogue Romance drew even with Achaemenes at the top of the stretch and that rival proved no match for the 2-5 favorite as Rogue Romance kicked clear in the final eighth of a mile.
