   After making her first four starts in France--where she collected a victory in the Listed Prix de la Grange Aux Belles S. in her second try--Starformer crossed the Atlantic to join the stable of Hall of Fame conditioner Bill Mott in the summer of her 3-year-old campaign. She recorded her first American win over this track and trip in her fourth stateside start nearly a year ago to the day, and went on to collect the GIII Robert G. Dick Memorial S. at Delaware in July. She rounded out the year with a victory in the GIII Long Island H. at Aqueduct Nov. 10. Resurfacing for her seasonal debut here, the homebred was sent off the 3-2 favorite. Breaking sharply from the rail, Starformer was taken back by Edgar Prado in the early stages, and settled into a ground saving third for the first trip past the stands. Moving out to travel outside the frontrunners down the backstretch, she moved into second for the run into the turn, and took over the lead while in hand approaching the quarter pole. Prado gave a shake of the reins at the top of the lane and Starformer responded, kicking clear to score comfortably. "We knew she was one of three horses in the race with speed and she fell into a good position third--she got a great trip," offered winning conditioner Bill Mott. "She came to us as a 3-year-old and was a little disappointing running in her first few races for us at a mile or a little more. She seemed to get in trouble. After that we stretched her out to 11 furlongs or more and she seems to like that a lot better. The [GIII] Orchid is here [Mar. 30] and I guess that will be next for her."
