In what could be the start of his road to the Kentucky Derby, Ralph M. Evans’ Upstart kicked off its 2015 campaign by cruising to a 5 ½-length victory in last Saturday’s $400,000 Lambholm South Holy Bull (G2) at Gulfstream Park. The 3-year-old Flatter-Party Silks Ridgling was developed in Camden at Frank Wooten Stables before being sent to trainer Rick Violette Jr. last spring. The victory was worth 10 points in the 2015 Kentucky Derby Points Standings for Upstart which finished second in the Grade I Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park last October before taking third in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita last November.
