Sweet Redemption, the lone first-timer in the field, belied her experience with a stylish maiden breaker. The Southern Chase homebred, under Luis Contreras, sat an ideal stalking trip as Lady Bear and Just Got In battled it out up front. Swung wide for the drive, she inched closer on the front pair, steadied off heels a bit at the furlong grounds, but continued her steady rally and got up in the final jump to take it by a neck over Just Got In. "She was just a little bit green down the lane," said Contreras. "But she just got it done. I like the filly." Trainer Gregory De Gannes was equally pleased with the performance. "It's always a leap of faith when you put a first-time starter in a 150-grander," he said. "But it all worked out." Click for the brisnet.com chart. Video, sponsored by Taylor Made Sales.
