LIFE IS GOOD (c, 4, Into Mischief – Beach Walk, by Dist M Humor) proved better than ever on Saturday in Belmont, recovering from fourth place in the G1 Dubai World Cup with a decisive score in the GII John A. Nerud S. With GISW Speaker’s Corner (Street Sense) was his only threat in this four-horse affair, Life Is Good was heavily bet as predicted in the prep for GI Whitney S. Seize the early advantage, the $525,000 purchase of KEESEP was forced through the first half by Speaker’s Corner. – Printer: 44.70. However, Life Is Good still uses cruise control and leaves that enemy in its dust in the lane, flying clear with an easy four-way score in 1:21.70. Life Is Good closes out 2021 with overwhelming wins in the GII Kelso H. and GI Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. He was a GI Pegasus World Cup winner before his attempt in Dubai in March. Lifetime record: 9-7-1-0.
