Texas Red was in no rush through the first half of the Sentient Jet Juvenile, running in last until the far turn. Then the Afleet Alex colt launched his assault, splitting horses and moving into the lead at the top of the stretch, where he began to draw away to a 6 1/2 length win. Favored Carpe Diem rallied late to outfinish Upstart by a nose for second. The final time for the 1 1/16 mile race was 1:41.91. Texas Red was ridden by Kent Desormeaux for his brother, trainer Keith Desormeaux.
