STANDARD DEVIATION (c, 2, Curlin–False Impression, by A.P. Indy), an overwhelming 45-100 favorite as a main-track-only entrant in this rained-off, scratch-reduced affair, was scrubbed along early to sit a far-back third out wide. Still hard ridden to inch closer along the turn for home, the $450,000 KEESEP yearling began to bear down on front-running fellow firster Vineyard Sound (Stormy Atlantic) as they straightened. He took over from that foe near the eighth pole, and steadily built on his edge from there to the tune of 2 3/4 lengths. Vineyard Sound held second by another 6 1/4 lengths. The winner’s second dam is two-time graded stakes-winning juvenile Classic Elegance (Carson City). His dam has a yearling colt by Hard Spun and a foal colt by Quality Road. She was bred back to Kitten’s Joy. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $46,750. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
