Super Saver off the mark in North America

I Spent It scored the first win for former Eliza Park shuttler Super Saver in North America on Wednesday.

I Spent It (2c Super Saver – Rateebaby Sky Mesa) tracked the pace on his debut in a Belmont Park maiden before getting up late by three-quarters of a length.  He clocked 58.11s over 1000m.

Bred in Kentucky by Dixiana Farms, I Spent It cost owners Alex and JoAnn Lieblong $600,000 at the at the Fasig-Tipton Florida 2YO Sale earlier this year.  His dam is a winning half-sister to Japanese Group 1 performer Eishin Le Mars and the dam of USA stakes-winning sprinter Zavata.

Super Saver (Maria’s Mon) retired to WinStar Farm after capturing the 2010 Kentucky Derby.  He shuttled to Eliza Park for a one-off season in 2011 and his first southern yearlings averaged $53,500 at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale in March.

Top price of $105,000 was paid by Kitchwin Hills for the half-sister to LR Ken Russell Memorial winner I Have No Fear (Rock Of Gibraltar).
