Today’s card at Hawthorne featured the Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity, a stakes race for state-bred juvenile colts and geldings.
Devileye, the only horse to enter the race with two wins, made it three with a late-running victory. His two previous races had both been impressive, displaying maturity behind the average two-year-old. His breeding had precedent for success, too, as his half-sister is a multiple stakes winner.
And, unrelated to his racing prowess, he also behaves impeccably when ridiculous human beings try to take selfies with him.
