Countess Curlin was second by a neck on debut at Remington Park Nov. 8 and came back to graduate by
4 1/2 lengths next time out at Retama Dec. 7. Most recently, she won a Houston allowance as the even-money favorite Jan. 18. She was unhurried through the opening stages and inched into contention entering the final turn. Countess Curlin split foes in midstretch, took the lead and pulled clear. Stonestreet purchased Countess Curlin’s dam Profit Column, a half-sister to European highweight Muhtarram (Alleged), for $1.25 million at the 2006 FTKNOV sale in faol to Storm Cat.
