Bourbon Lane Stable’s Hashtag Bourbon (c, 2, Super Saver–Waltzing With Deb, by Robyn Dancer) settled well off the pace and at one time was last of seven in Saturday’s Mountaineer Juvenile S. before advancing a few spots on the turn. Hard against the bit thereafter, he pulled Brian Hernandez Jr. four wide and around rivals into the stretch, tackled pacesetting Gotta Get Paid (Pomeroy) approaching the final furlong and galloped away an easy four-length winner to give his promising freshman sire (by Maria’s Mon) his first black-type winner and fourth winner overall. A $50,000 Keeneland September graduate, Hasthtag Bourbon fetched $130,000 at this year’s OBS March Sale after working an eighth of a mile in :10 2/5. The bay colt was a 9-1 shot and did well to finish a rallying third after a stumble at the start in the June 24 Churchill maiden taken by Mr. Z (Malibu Moon), who returned to just miss in the GIII Sanford S. at Saratoga July 19.
