The Grand Legend, a sorrel gelding owned by Lifes Good Racing Partners LLC, earned his first stakes in the $100,000 Heritage Place Juvenile Stakes at Remington Park on Saturday.

Ridden by Agustin Silva and sent to post at odds of 14-1, The Grand Legend covered 350 yards in :17.443 and earned a 92 speed index while aided by a reported 8-mph tail wind. Clint Crawford prepped the son of the Fdd Dynasty stallion Fdd Going Grand.

The Grand Legend broke his maiden in a Heritage Place Futurity (G1) trial on May 11, the first night of trials. He was bred in Texas by Mercy Hinklin's Horse Farm LLC, and he is out of Legendary Seis, a homebred winning 11-year-old daughter of 2001 champion 2-year-old colt Tres Seis and a finalist in the 2009 TQHA Sale Futurity (RG1) at Sam Houston Race Park.

The Grand Legend has won two of three starts, and the $25,000 winner's share of the Heritage Place Juvenile purse inreased his earnings to $35,954.

Fast Bobby, Tuff Copa Lbh, Viva Le Don, Separate Jets, Apollitical Luck, Mr Corona Crystal, Asteroid Dash, Dash Master Angel, and Rappid completed the official order of finish.
