showed plenty of class when runner-up behind Heart of Destiny (Lion Heart)--subsequently runner up in the GI Alcibiades S.--in her debut in a key maiden test at Saratoga last September. Third that day was Karlovy Vary (Dynaformer), this term's winner of the GI Ashland S. Backed down to 3-4 favoritism off the lengthy absence, Pianist stalked the early pace, took over at the head of the lane and was five-lengths clear of Praise Band (Unbridled's Song) at the wire. Divine Luck (Ghostzapper) was third. Sales history: $100,000 yrl '10 KEESEP. Click for the brisnet.com chart or Video, sponsored by Taylor Made Sales.
