ALBEROBELLO (f, 3, Bernardini-Carson Jen, by Carson City), backed down to even-money off a close second on debut on the GII Tampa Bay Derby undercard Mar. 10, justified her short price and then some to post an impressive first victory. Drawing in off the also-eligible list and breaking from the far outside, the $475,000 KEESEP yearling chased newcomer Urban Insight (Street Sense) and ranged up to that one’s right flank turning for home. From there she pulled away and poured it on, cruising under the wire some eight lengths to the good in 1:23.99. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0.
