No Distinction earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 100 in his maiden win at Oaklawn Park in April.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - No Distinction, a two-time allowance winner at the Churchill Downs meet, could make his next start in the Grade 2 Amsterdam Stakes on July 28 at Saratoga, trainer Randy Morse said.

A 3-year-old Florida-bred colt with 3 wins from 4 starts, No Distinction already has posted several big Beyer Speed Figures, including a 100 in a maiden win at Oaklawn Park in April. He is owned by the Iron Horse Racing of David Clark.

“We’ve left some money on the table already running through his first two conditions,” said Morse, alluding to the restrictive Kentucky Thoroughbred Development Fund bonuses that comprise a hefty percentage of maiden and allowance purses at Kentucky tracks. “It’ll either be the Amsterdam or a ‘three-other-than’ up at Saratoga.”
