PHANTOM CURRENCY captures the G2 Mac Diarmida Stake at Gulfstream Park.
PHANTOM CURRENCY tops an excellent weekend and start to 2021 for Alistair Roden Bloodstock with a second stakes winner in two days, and fourth individual stakes winner this year.
PHANTOM CURRENCY lead the whole way in the 1 & 3/8 mile turf race, fending off challengers down the lane to win by 3/4 length. The son of GOLDENCENTS increased his earnings to $314,000, coming into his own over the last 18 months and winning both his races this year.
Congratulations to Jim Hill and Brian Lynch and his team for their patience with this horse. PHANTOM CURRENCY was a private purchase as a weanling for Alistair Roden and recommended as a yearling purchase at the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling sale.
