+BLUEBLOOD (c, 2, City Zip–Forest Gamble, by Forest Wildcat), who firmed into 95-100 favoritism late just ahead of the more experienced Wesley Ward shipper Ultima D (Scat Daddy), ran to the money to graduate at first asking in the first juvenile race of the Woodbine meet. Off alertly, the $300,000 Keeneland September purchase held a spot at the fence just to the inside of Yallhaveaniceday (Kentucky Bear) before being driven along to take up the running with about three furlongs to travel. Ultima D revved up three wide and looked as if she was going to make a race of it, but Blueblood kicked nicely at the eighth pole and never looked like losing, scoring by a tight length on the wire. Yallhaveaniceday held third. The winner is out of a half-sister to ‘TDN Rising Star’ and MGSW Gamble’s Ghost (Ghostzapper) and has a yearling half-sister by Twirling Candy. Forest Gamble, a debut romper at three here at three in 2012 and out of a debut winner herself, was most recently returned to City Zip. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $32,197.
