J V's Bad Boy
J Vís Bad Boy and Robert Taylor win the Jimmy Sunshine Stake at Balmoral Park.
Balmoral Park racing fans received their first look at some of this seasonís two-year-old colt pacing crop on Sunday night as a field of nine youngsters met in the $5,000 Jimmy Sunshine Stake.

Those on hand were treated to quite a performance as the Robert Taylor bred, owned, trained and driven J Vís Bad Boy came flying down the lane to win by a neck in 1:55.4. The final time was a National Seasons Best for a two-year-old gelding pacer.

Kept in mid-pack throughout much of the mile by Taylor, who is quickly earning himself quite a reputation as a highly regarded developer of young talent, this son of Jodyís Cam-Prettys Sassy Miss was third over as the field turned for home.

Quickly gobbling up horses while flying down the outside out the track J Vís Bad boy then zipped home in 27.3 to make his debut a winning one. Nash Gram (Josh Sutton) provided cover for the winner and wound up a game second while Apache Renegade, the longest shot on the board at 57-1, shook loose late to finish third.

The two-year-old action continues on Tuesday night at Balmoral Park as freshmen pacing fillies meet in the $5,000 Egyptian Grande Stake which goes as the second race on the 10-race program.
