‘SPARKLING’ CONTINUES TO SHINE
Churchill=s GII Mrs. Revere S. looked like anyone=s
race before they sprung the latch, but Beverly Anderson
and Edward Seltzer=s Sparkling Review (Lemon Drop
Kid), a last-out winner of
Keeneland=s GIII Valley View
S., hogged the spotlight as
she powered home to a
decisive tally from Pebbles
S. winner Lady Lara (Ire)
(Excellent Art {GB}). AShe's
a very nice filly,@ said
winning rider Julien
Sparkling Review
Leparoux, who bagged a trio
Reed Palmer/Churchill Downs
of victories on the Churchill
card, including both graded stakes. AShe has always
given me a very nice kick at the end and she's done
everything very easily in her last two wins now. I didn't
even have to whip her today; I just asked her a little bit
and felt like she had plenty left in the tank. I don't
know where she'll go next but I am definitely excited
about riding her again." Cont. p3

NOVEMBER MARKET
It=s an odd thing about sales companies: they are the
first to respond to market changes by altering the
formats of their sales, yet, both in America and Europe,
they=re fiercely competitive in what they have to say
about the sales--or, rather, what they say about their
sales. I=m quite grateful because, really, from the points
of view of shoppers and buyers, as well as anybody in
the outside world who takes an interest, it=s all one
market--given, of course that there are market sectors,
and market tiers, yet nobody else really reports it that
way.
When we look at that one Kentucky November mixed
sale market, comprised of Fasig-Tipton=s kickoff day on
Monday, Nov. 3, plus Keeneland=s 11 days from the
4th-14th, the totals really were about dead even with
last year=s. This year 2,620 horses sold over the
12 days for a total of $269,577,500, and an average of
$102,892. In 2013 there were 2,586 horses sold for
$271,048,000, and an average of $104,814. The
number sold was up by 1%; the gross was down by
one half of 1% (.5%); and the average was down by
2%. The difference was, there were 10% more
catalogued this year, so the clearance rate from the
catalogues for the two sales dropped from 67.6% last
year to 62.0% this year. Cont. p12

FEATURE PRESENTATION • GII MRS. REVERE S.
Fifth in her muddy debut sprinting on the local main
track June 20, Sparkling Review returned from a brief
freshening to defeat three next-out graduates over a
grassy Arlington mile Aug. 9. The bay bested another
subsequent winner in a Kentucky Downs allowance
Sept. 6, and made her stakes debut a winning one
when she flew home to take Keeneland=s GIII Valley
View S. Oct. 17.
Re-opposed here by three Valley View also-rans,
including runner-up Spring Included (Include), Sparkling
Review was hard-held while in between horses into the
first turn. She settled in midpack and off the hedge
down the backside, but looked to be losing her spot as
the field tightened up on the home bend. Leparoux
didn=t panic with plenty left to do as they straightened,
and he worked his mount through a seam in midstretch.
She responded willingly to overtake pacesetting Kiss
Moon and build on her advantage to the wire to remain
unbeaten on grass.
AI don't know if she got the best trip but she got a
pretty good one,@ said up-and-coming trainer Ben
Colebrook (click here for more). AJulien and I talked
about it before the race how we didn't think she would
be quite as far back as she had been in other races. But
Julien was able to work that out; he saved ground
around the first turn and kind of waited and he said she
only really ran for a quarter of a mile. She's got such an
unbelievable turn of foot; it's pretty crazy when you
think about the fact that she was just a maiden in
August."
On what could be next, Colebrook said, "I nominated
her to [Del Mar=s] [Nov. 30 GI] Matriarch and to the
[Nov. 29 GI] Hollywood Derby, because we said going in
that if she won impressively that we would talk about it,
and now that she has, we'll definitely talk about it. But
I'm not sure what we'll do from here to be honest."

off the rail to make his

Blue Kitten. "[The Canadian International] was a really
tough race, obviously,@ offered Kathryn Sullivan,
assistant to winning conditioner Mark Casse. AHe got a
great trip today, and everything seemed to come
together for him. He didn't have the best start in the
International, which put him behind in the race, but
today everything went exactly as planned. Cornelio
[Velasquez] took him off the pace a little bit and had
him sitting perfectly. When that hole opened, he just
went right on through and had a ton of horse. It was
perfect; you couldn't ask for a better trip."

Stakes-placed last season for Mike Stidham over the
Woodbine Polytrack, Heart to Heart kicked off his
sophomore campaign with a streaking 6 1/4-length
Keeneland allowance romp in his April turf debut from
subsequent GIII Iowa Derby winner Jessica=s Star
(Magna Graduate). He could only manage a close sixth
after an indecisive ride in Woodbine=s Marine S. in May,
and was eighth when failing to make the lead in July=s
Queen=s Plate. The bay was third switching back to the
sod for the nine-furlong Toronto Cup July 20, but
cruised by three lengths when returned to a grassy, flat
mile in Saratoga=s Aug. 20 Better Talk Now S. Heart to
Heart added a similarly impressive win in this venue=s
GIII Jefferson Cup S. Sept. 27, and loomed an imposing
presence without much other speed to keep him
honest. The chalk showed the way as expected
through splits of :23.60, :47.53 and 1:11.53, and
proved not for catching as he glided home along the
hedge. AHe's a fast horse from the gate,@ noted winning
rider Julien Leparoux. AHe pretty much took me on the
lead and the way he relaxed in the early stages gave
him the ability to finish very strong. Luckily everything
went according to plan today and he won easy again."

Commonwealth Turf cont.
Added conditioner Brian Lynch, AI think one of this
horse's biggest assets is how well he runs the turns. He
really ran around the first turn smoothly, relaxed down
the backside and accelerated into that last turn really
well. I think his
acceleration in the
turns allows him to get
an advantage on the
other horses and by
the time they
straightened up down
the lane he was full of
confidence. He
obviously got lost a
little bit earlier this

year in the Queen's
shape of his blaze, draws off in the
Plate--being a

Despite entering the day tied for most winners (18)
among North American freshman sires with fellow
Ashford inmate Lookin At Lucky (Smart Strike),
Munnings had not yet had a stakes winner from his first
crop. That was about to change. His daughter Lake

early in the day, about
an hour before Fifth

maiden up at
Woodbine to give
Munnings his 19th

there was more to

the backside. The
former poked a head in
front at the quarter pole, and while Alright Alright
appeared at times to be less-than-in-love with the
Polytrack, he was starting to come alive out wide. No
Problem was headed briefly in upper stretch by St. Joe
Bay, and the chalk looked a serious threat down the
center of the track. But No Problem found another gear
with some help from pilot Victor Espinoza, and the
chestnut dug deep to fend off his much-more-fancied
paternal sibling.

De Francis Dash cont.
Jockey Alex Cintron was originally scheduled to ride
Zee Bros in this test, but he broke his jaw in a spill at
Laurel Friday and was replaced by Jose Oritz, whose
original mount, La Verdad (Yes It=s True), was
scratched Friday.
Kicking off his career on the West Coast under the
care of fellow Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Zee Bros
graduated at second asking last March and faded to
sixth after setting the pace in Churchill=s GIII Derby Trial
a month later. Victorious in Pimlico=s Chick Lang S. in
his only other trip to Maryland that May, he was fifth in
Belmont=s GII Woody Stephens S. June 8 and failed to
fire when 10th in Arcadia=s GI Malibu S. Dec. 26.
Transferred to Seth Benzel and sent to Dubai, the bay
was fourth in the Swaidan Trading Trophy Feb. 27, a
non-factor 11th in the GIII Meydan Sprint Mar. 8 and
sixth in the G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen Mar. 29.
Returning to the States, the 4-year-old was second in a
sloppy off-the-turfer at Saratoga Aug. 13 and seventh
in the GI Forego S. Aug. 30. Put in the hands of the
Coach after that, Zee Bros was a well beaten eighth
behind Private Zone (Macho Uno) and GISW Dads Caps
(Discreet Cat) in the Belmont=s GI Vosburgh Invitational
S. Sept. 27 and was seventh to GI Breeders= Cup Sprint
hero Work All Week (City Zip) in Keeneland=s
GIII Phoenix S. Oct. 3. The bay returned to the winner=s
circle for the first time in a year and half last out when
he wired the field in a 5 1/2-panel allowance over the

BLACK-TYPE PREVIEWS
‘MAMBO’ LOOKS TO ADD ANOTHER CROWN
Today=s G1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Kyoto will see
last year=s heroine Meisho Mambo (Jpn) (Suzuka
Mambo {Jpn}) back to
defend her crown after
taking this affair as a 3-yearold. The triple Group 1
winner has not been first
past the post in four starts
this year and has only hit
the board once in her
second start this term at
Tokyo May 18 with a
Meisho Mambo
runner-up finish behind the
Japan Racing Association
re-opposing Verxina (Jpn)
(Deep Impact {Jpn}) in the G1 Victoria Mile. "Even
though her last race [in the G2 Kyoto Daishoten at
Kyoto Oct. 14] was the first in a while, she was feeling
good,@ commented trainer Yuji Iida. AThere may have
been any number of reasons for the loss but as far as
her condition was concerned, that wasn't the problem.
She always wakes up with a race behind her, but I've
been doing my best to have her wanting to run when
we put the jockey up and point her at the finish line. I
think if she's in an all-female crowd she'll be top-level if
she can give it what she's got." Iida=s charge will also
have to contend with top 3-year-old filly Nuovo Record
(Jpn) (Heart=s Cry {Jpn}), who was third in the G1 Oka
Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) Apr. 13, captured the G1
Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) May 25 and also won
the GII Kansai Telecasting Corp. Sho Rose S. at
Hanshin Sept. 21. She missed by a neck last out to
Shonan Pandora (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) in the third
jewel of the Triple Crown in the G1 Shuka Sho Oct. 19.
AShe's calm and eating well,@ said trainer Makoto
Saito. AI think the Kyoto outer course is good for her.
I'd like to even things out from the Shuka Sho." Shonan
Pandora has been consistently among the top two in
her last four starts this season and hit a career high
with her Shuka Sho victory. The 2200-meter distance
should suit the Naosuke Sugai trainee. The 2013
runner-up Lachesis (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) also looks
an intriguing chance after a pair of seconds from four
starts this year, including the course-and-distance
G2 Sankei Sho All Comers when last seen Sept. 28.
"She was just off a layoff for her last race and we had
left a bit of room for improvement,@ said Kengo Takada,
assistant trainer to Katsuhiko Sumii. AI think her
second-place finish was an indication of how talented
she is and that race will surely work to her advantage

GOLD CUP A ONE-‘HORSE’ AFFAIR?
War Affair (NZ) (O=Reilly {NZ}) figured a warm
favorite to complete the Singapore Triple Crown for
older horses in today=s Longines Singapore Gold Cup,
that is until he drew post 14 at Wednesday=s barrier
draw. But if connections are overly concerned, it wasn=t
showing in the immediate aftermath of the draw.
AThat=s okay. It=s good that we=ve got Quechua (Arg)
(Pure Prize) and Lizarre (SAf) (Jet Master {SAf}) on his
outside,@ said jockey Danny Beasley. AI think that it=s
good we have the horse we can give the most respect
[Quechua] on our outside and Lizarre drawn in 16, as
that will give us two
good horses to [email protected]
If there is an animal
good enough to
overcome the wide
alley, it just might be
War Affair. The 4-yearold enters this richest
domestic affair with five
victories from his last
War Affair

six appearances,
including a 1 3/4-length success in the Kranji Mile Oct.
5 and a 4 3/4-length defeat of Goodman (NZ) (Alamosa
{NZ}) in the Raffles Cup over 1800 meters Oct. 26.
Patrick Shaw guided local legend Rocket Man (Aus)
(Viscount {Aus}) throughout his successful career and
has the training duties on Quechua. A lightly raced 4year-old, the gelding has come through the grades and
has won two straight, including a 2 1/2-length score
over Cheetah On Fire (NZ) (One Cool Cat) and
Emperor=s Banquet (Aus) (Holy Romam Emperor {Ire}) in
the El Dorado Classic going this 2200-meter distance
Oct. 26. Tommy Berry jets in from Australia to partner
with defending race champion Tropaios (GB) (Excellent
Art {GB}). The 5-year-old, who returned just under 5-1
for the victory last year, will be a much bigger price this
time around, as he has failed to win in seven
subsequent trips to the post and exits a well-beaten
ninth to War Affair in the Raffles Cup.

Cont. from p1
With 10% fewer catalogued for their one-day
extravaganza, and a 4% drop in their clearance rate
from the catalogue as well, Fasig=s share of the
combined market gross declined to 24% from 27% last
year. However, to sell a quarter of the market in one
day is pretty good, on top of which they sold 12 of the
18 horses which brought $2 million or more (though
Keeneland had the new record North American
weanling, a $3-million Tapit filly); and 23 of the
41 which brought $1 million or more.
In recent years the mixed sales, both in North
America and Europe, have been characterized by
strength in depth in
the weanling market
rather than the mares,
though demand for
broodmares and
broodmare prospects
looked much stronger
this year. Seven
Kentucky stallions
represented by their
first crops of foals
Union Rags
averaged $70,000+,
Lane’s End
though they will all be
dwarfed when the first foals by Frankel sell at Goffs
next Thursday. For this week, though, they are the
leaders. Lane=s End=s Union Rags (Dixie Union) has had
17 weanlings sell for an average of $133,941 (click
here), just edging WinStar=s Bodemeister (Empire
Maker), who had 23 sell, for an average of $118,749.
Both, however, had medians of $130,000 and
exceptionally high clearance rates of 85% and 92%,
respectively. They=re kind of tied at the top.
I was interested to read Braxton Lynch=s comment in
yesterday=s TDN (click here) that she sees a lot of
Nijinsky II in both Union Rags and his foals, as I had
made a similar comment about the horse himself
striking me as very Nijinsky (Oct. 29) when I had seen
him. Of course, it doesn=t mean that he will really throw
Nijinskys, but if he does it will be a valuable source of
Nijinsky even if it doesn=t say that on the sire line
>blurb=. Cont. p13
“As detailed in the column, the combined November market, including both
Fasig-Tipton’s one-day extravaganza on Nov. 3 and Keeneland’s 11-day sale, was
remarkably similar to last year’s: number sold up 1%; gross down one-half of one
percent; average down 2%. The only real difference was a lower clearance rate
from the catalogues - down 5.6% from last year. The European Mixed Sales, the
last major sector to sell in the calendar year, get underway tomorrow at Goffs.
Frankel foals will make fireworks Thursday.”

Sons of Bernardini finished third and fourth on this
freshman sire list: Ashford=s Stay Thirsty averaged
$91,833 with 12 sold; while Gainesway=s To Honor
and Serve had nine average $90,778. Lane=s End=s The
Factor, the first Kentucky-based son of War Front to
have foals in the marketplace got good reviews, with
20 averaging $87,150. Gainesway=s Tapizar (Tapit) also
got great reviews from the market, with 15 selling of
17 offered (88%) for an average of $83,600. I was
interested to read Lucas Marquardt=s observations
about Tapizar in Friday=s TDN (click here) regarding
Tapit=s potential as a sire of sires. I think it=s a really
interesting development, in that, the way it=s looked to
me, neither Trappe Shot (first yearlings) nor Tapizar
(first weanlings) were particularly >expected= by the
market. It suggests to me that both--like Tapit himself
did--somewhat >surprised= the market with very good,
uniform individuals. The top seven North American
weanling sires were rounded out by Darby Dan=s
Shackleford (Forestry), who had 15 weanlings average
$71,933.
Among sires with their first mares selling in foal, of
those with 10 or more
sold (click here),

topped the charts, with

Bobby (Harlan=s Holiday)
Orb
came next, with 12 sold
Claiborne Farm
for an average of

sparkling 100% of all 12 offered. Darley=s 2011 GI
Kentucky Derby winner (and 2013 G1 Dubai World Cup
winner) Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux {Brz}) had
22 mares in foal average $170,773. Taylor Made=s

another four catalogued the

ourselves why: he=s probably the
best racehorse any of us have ever seen. Timeform
rated him at 143 as a 3-year-old, and he became their
highest-rated horse ever as a 4-year-old in 2012,
earning a year-end Timeform rating of 147 after
completing three seasons of racing, undefeated in 14
starts, under the tutelage of the late, great Henry Cecil.
He was rated even higher than Sea The Stars (Ire), who
in 2009 earned a Timeform rating of 140 after going
unbeaten in six Group 1 races at three, including the
English 2000 Guineas, the Epsom Derby, and the Prix
de l=Arc de Triomphe, with three 10-furlong wins (over
Rip Van Winkle, Mastercraftsman, and Fame And Glory,
respectively) in between. You know what kind of a sire
Sea The Stars is, and Frankel was rated higher than
even Sea The Stars.
Just as form behind Sea The Stars is proving
meaningful in the sire ranks, so form behind Frankel is
likely to be. Two horses who, like him, stayed in
training at four in 2012 and have their first foals selling
over the next two weeks are of particular interest.
Coolmore=s sales debutant Excelebration (Ire) (Exceed
And Excel {Aus}) was five times placed behind Frankel
at a mile (four times second, one time third) at three
(when trained by Marco Botti) and four (Aidan O=Brien).
When Frankel stepped up to 10 furlongs for his last two
races, Excelebration won two Group 1=s at a mile,
including the Queen Elizabeth S. on British Champions
Day in 2012, when he looked like Frankel against other
Group 1 milers. Using Racing Post Ratings (RPR), which
are similar to Timeform ratings, Frankel ran RPRs of
136-143 in each of his last seven starts, including
143 twice. Excelebration ran RPR 131 when he
outclassed his opposition in the 2012 Queen Elizabeth
S. Cont. p14
TDN P HEADLINE NEWS • 11/16/14 • PAGE 14 of 14 • thoroughbreddailynews.com
Oppenheim cont.
The other horse with significant form behind Frankel,
though not as often, was Newsells Park=s Nathaniel (Ire)
(Galileo {Ire}). He only met Frankel twice, in the first
and last race for both. He dropped a half-length
decision to him as a 2-year-old in a one-mile maiden at
Newmarket, then they both closed out their careers
26 months later in the G1 Champion S. as part of the
2012 British Champions Day. After Excelebration won
the one-mile 'QE II,= Frankel defeated Cirrus des Aigles
and Nathaniel in the Champion S. Nathaniel ran an RPR
127 in that race, the fourth time in four 2012 races he
had run to the same figure. He had also run RPR 127
when winning the previous year=s G1 King George VI
and Queen Elizabeth S. There=s nothing more important
in this business than understanding form lines, and
these are two pretty good examples, so, besides
watching Frankel=s headline-grabbers, astute students
will also be looking closely at the weanlings by
Excelebration (29, including six at Goffs, 20 at
Tattersalls, and three at Arqana) and Nathaniel (25:
three at Goffs, 19 at Tatts=, and three at Arqana) over
the next few weeks.
These top prospects are just three of the 19 stallions
which have 10 or more foals catalogued to sell at
Goffs, Tattersalls, and Arqana over the next few weeks
(click here for F2014 sire with first weanlings). Among
these are no fewer than six stallions with 40 or more
foals catalogued; needless to say, the foal market is a
big deal in Europe. Goffs sells foals from tomorrow
through Thursday, then mares, etc. Friday and
Saturday. Tattersalls has a one-day yearling sale to kick
off their marathon December Sale (most of which is in
November), then four days of foals Nov. 26-29, and
four days of mares, etc. Dec. 1-4. Arqana finishes the
European sales season with its Mixed Sale Dec. 6-9.
Of the six sires with 40+ catalogued over the three
sales, the top two by number catalogued at Goffs,
starting tomorrow, are Darley=s Casamento (Ire)
(Shamardal), who stands at Kildangan Stud in Ireland;
and Tally-Ho Stud=s Sir Prancealot (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}),
who have 45 foals each at Goffs. Casamento went
three-for-four as a 2-year-old when trained by Mick
Halford for Sheikh Mohammed, including the G1 Racing
Post Trophy, but could manage only one Group 3 win
at three when trained by Mahmoud Al-Zarooni for
Godolphin. Sir Prancealot, from the first crop by the
very good miler Tamayuz, raced only at two--like
Tally-Ho=s current success story, Zebedee--when he
won the G2 Flying Childers S. over five furlongs and
finished in the first four in the G2 Norfolk at Royal
Ascot, the G2 Robert Papin, and the G1 Prix Morny.
Casamento leads all first-year F2014 sires with 63
catalogued through the three sales; Sir Prancealot has
55 catalogued.
Of the 40+ brigade, Rathasker Stud=s Born To Sea
(Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), a half-brother to Sea The
Stars who ran second to Camelot in a heavy-ground
G1 Irish Derby, has 30 catalogued at Goffs (41 total);
and Coolmore=s Power (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), who
won the G2 Coventry at Royal Ascot and G1 National
S. at two, and the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas at three, has
21 at Goffs, and 40 total.
The other two sires with 40+ are more heavily
represented at Newmarket: Tweenhills= Harbour Watch
(Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) really could have been any
kind. He only ran three times, all at two, and won them
all, culminating in an impressive win in the G2
Richmond S. at Goodwood. There are 53 by him at
Tattersalls (61 total). Juddmonte=s Bated Breath (GB)
(Dansili {GB}) scored his only group race win in the G2
Temple S., but ran second or third in five Group 1=s at
five and six furlongs. He has 41 at Tatts (45 overall).
There are also two interesting prospects among the
19 stallions with double-digit representation with
Australian form. Coolmore=s So You Think (NZ) (High
Chaparral {Ire}) won five Group 1=s in Australia and
added another five Group 1=s--all around the 10-furlong
distance--for Aidan O=Brien. In all, he ran RPRs of
127-129 10 times, which is uncommonly consistent at
a top-class level. So You Think is represented by
17 foals from his first crop over the three sales.
Darley=s Sepoy (Aus) was a very fast son of Elusive
Quality who won 10 of his first 11 starts in Australia,
including four six-furlong Group 1 races at two and
three. He ran RPRs of 119-126 in 10 consecutive races.
He has 25 foals catalogued, 22 of then at Tattersalls.
Not nearly so many are catalogued in foal to the most
prominent sires which retired in 2014 (click here for
F2015 sires with first mares in foal). Montjeu=s only
Guineas winner (G1 English 2000 Guineas) and one of
his four G1 Epsom Derby winners is Coolmore=s
Camelot (GB), who has 24 mares catalogued in foal
across the three sales. With 22 each are: Dabirsim (Fr)
(Hat Trick {Jpn}), the unbeaten 2011 French 2-year-old
champion, who stands in Germany at Gestut Karlshof
(Maxios {GB}, by Monsun, also stands in Germany, at
Gestut Fahrhof, and has 16 catalogued in foal);
Coolmore=s Declaration of War (War Front), who has
now been transferred to Ashford; and Cheveley Park=s
Lethal Force (Ire), from Dark Angel (Ire)=s first crop, and
the best European sprinter of 2013 not named
Moonlight Cloud. Havana Gold (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}), the
2013 G1 Jean Prat winner who stands alongside
Harbour Watch at Tweenhills, has 20 mares catalogued
in foal. Darley=s Dawn Approach (Ire) (New Approach
{Ire}), an unbeaten 2-year-old who went on to win the
G1 English 2000 Guineas and Royal Ascot=s G1 St.
James=s Palace S., both at a mile, has 17 catalogued;
and Cheveley Park=s Intello (Ger) (Galileo), winner of the
G1 Prix du Jockey-Club and third in three other
top-class Group 1 races, including the >Arc,= has
13 catalogued from his first crop at Tattersalls and
Deauville.

HOT CITY GIRL (f, 2, City Zip--Noble Fire {SP}, by
Hook and Ladder), fourth on debut going seven panels
on the turf against state-breds at Belmont Oct. 9, was
installed as the 5-2 chalk for this off-the-turfer. The
chestnut broke on top, but was overtaken and forced to
settle in a stalking third. Drawing alongside the leading
duo after a half in :47.63, Hot City Girl took control
entering the bend and cruised clear under a hand ride to
score a seemingly effortless 6 3/4-length victory.

1st Dam: Sumthingtotalkabt, by Mutakddim

Lady Shipman set a pressured pace and tired to finish
third, beaten two lengths, as the 6-5 chalk going
5 1/2 furlongs in her Gulfstream West dirt debut Oct.
18. Switching to
grass after posting a
pair of easy works
here, the 8-5 chalk
was not for catching.
On the engine
through fractions of
:21.89 and :45.23,
the chestnut began to
edge clear on the far
turn and impressively
dropped the hammer
in the stretch to win
Lady Shipman
Leslie Martin
by 11 1/4 lengths.
Lady Master (Into
Mischief), off at odds of 55-1, completed a $165.20
exacta. Lady Shipman becomes the 15th winner for her
freshman sire (by Unbridled=s Song). Ranlo Investments

BIG YUM (c, 2, Kantharos--Hi Avie, by Lord Avie)
finished fourth against state-breds going 5 1/2 panels
over the main track here Oct. 27 and was overlooked at
10-1 in this switch to the sod. The dark bay broke on
top, but was overtaken by favored A Bit Quick (Super
Saver) and settled to stalk from second. Even with that
leader at the top of the lane, Big Yum kicked clear for a
one-length victory. Prince Vincenzo (Exclusive Quality)
was second and A Bit Quick faded to sixth. Big Yum is

in the early going, the bay tucked in along the rail down
the backside and had the front-running Latent Revenge

closer to the weakening leader in the lane, Bo Talon
overtook his rival late and was 1 1/4-lengths clear of

Restrained to race back in sixth after figuring

once offered a dream rail opening in the short straight
to immediately set seal on a career high. ABattalion had
a tendency to hang badly left, but taking a lead seemed
to work the oracle, and [trainer] William [Haggas] has
done a good job of getting inside the horse=s head and
figuring it out,@ explained rider Tom Queally. AThe splits
came at the right time and I had plenty of horse to take
them when they did come. If they had gone a better
gallop it would have suited him much better, but he
quickened enough when it mattered and it was a good
