+NOBLE FREUD (f, 3, Freud–Noble Fire {SP}, by Hook and Ladder), a half-sister to 2015 Champion Female Sprinter La Verdad (Yes It’s True), MGSW & GISP, $1,563,200; and GSW & GISP Hot City Girl (City Zip), $608,150, was dismissed at odds of 6-1 for this career debut, but made quick work of the field in a wire-to-wire romp. Instantly speeding clear of her rivals at the start, the New York-bred doled out solid early fractions of :21.94 and :45.34 and was never threatened, cruising home to an effortless six-length victory. Favored Excessivespending (Shackleford) completed the exacta. In addition to champion La Verdad, who had her first foal–a Medaglia d’Oro filly–Monday, and Hot City Girl, who runs in Saturday’s Broadway S. at Aqueduct, the winner has a yearling half-brother by champion Will Take Charge. Sales history: $30,000 Ylg ’15 FTKOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $43,200. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
