ALMASHRIQ (c, 2, War Front–Theyskens’ Theory {GSW & G1SP-Eng, GISP-US, $195,502}, by Bernardini) was rousted along from a slumbering start to track the leaders in midfield after the early stages of this unveiling. Inching ever closer from halfway, the 8-11 pick loomed large inside the two pole and was pushed out once seizing control approaching the final eighth to assert by 1 3/4 lengths from Cape Victory (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}). Half to a yearling filly by Uncle Mo and a filly foal by Pioneerof the Nile, the $1.2m Keeneland September yearling is the fourth foal and third winner produced by G3 Prestige S. victress and G1 Fillies’ Mile and GI Garden City S. placegetter Theyskens’ Theory (Bernardini). His dam, who was bred to Uncle Mo this year, is kin to US champion and GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile-winning sire Stevie Wonderboy (Stephen Got Even) and a granddaughter of MGISP GIII Schuylerville S. victress Mystical Mood (Roberto). Sales history: $1,200,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $4,773. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
