Sconsin Will Make 5-Year-Old Debut In Monday’s Winning Colors

Sconsin wins the 2021 edition of the Winning Colors

Lloyd Madison Farm's multiple graded stakes winner Sconsin is set to make her 5-year-old debut and defend her crown in Monday's 19th running of the $200,000 Winning Colors (Grade 3) at Churchill Downs.

Monday's Memorial Day program from Churchill Downs will have a first post of 12:45 p.m. (all times Eastern). The Winning Colors will go as Race 8 of 9 with a post time of 4:22 p.m.

Five rivals entered to face five-time winner Sconsin in the Winning Colors. The Greg Foley-trained daughter of Include has been on the sidelines since her half-length victory in the $300,000 Open Mind last September.

Sconsin cruised to a 3 ¼-length win in last year's Winning Colors under jockey Tyler Gaffalione. Following her victory in the Winning Colors, Sconsin was narrowly defeated by Bell's the One in the $110,000 Roxelana. Sconsin tested Grade 1 company in last year's $500,000 Ballerina but finished fourth to champion female sprinter Gamine.

“Her setup this year is sort of the same as last year getting the winter off,” Foley said. “She took the winter off after she ran fourth in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint in 2020. We brought her back in the Madison but decided to target the Winning Colors this year to start the year.”

Sconsin will be ridden by Gaffalione from post position No. 3.

She'll be joined in the starting gate by graded stakes-placed fillies Joyful Cadence and Li'l Tootsie along with allowance winners Euphoric, Novel Squall and Tipsy Gal.
