Dance Card, looking for her third straight victory, was off a step slowly, but took control after a quarter in :23.65. She began to open up on the field after a half in :46.88 and, despite drifting out on the turn, ran away down the lane to win as much the best under a motionless Ramon Dominguez. A debut second at Belmont May 20, Dance Card scored by a half-length over track and trip July 6 and was coming off a 2 1/4-length victory at Saratoga Aug. 17. The gray filly, a $750,000 FTFFEB juvenile, is a full-sister to the colt who brought a session-topping $700,000 at Keeneland September last week. Click for the brisnet.com chart.
