Smarten Up Summary

Trainer Alfredo Velazquez, who came to public attention through the high-quality sprinter-miler Private Zone, now has a potential 2022 Kentucky Derby contender in Smarten Up. A Florida-bred from the first crop of Travers S. (G1) runner-up American Freedom, Smarten Up is out of Sarah Cataldo, a daughter of 2004 Kentucky Derby winner Smarty Jones. Sarah Cataldo’s family includes Pennsylvania Derby (G2) winner Love of Money and the Grade 2 winner My Girl Red. Bred by Francis and Barbara Vanlangendonck, Smarten Up was a $50,000 purchase at the OBS April Sale for Happy Tenth Stable.
