   Admirably consistent, with just one off-the-board effort to date, Dance to Bristol negotiated this hike into graded-stakes company with aplomb, establishing a new stakes record in the process. Winner of the Pandera S. at Aqueduct at two, the attractive chestnut added the 2012 Marshua S. at Laurel, but was runner-up in her next four outings, including the What A Summer S. at Laurel Jan. 12. It’s been blue skies since. Odds-on when successful in optional-claimers in Maryland Feb. 6 and Mar. 15, respectively, Dance to Bristol earned a career-best 106 Beyer while romping by nine lengths in the Sugar Maple S. at Charles Town Apr. 20, and she made it four on the bounce with a 4 3/4-length triumph in the Skipat S. on the Black-Eyed Susan S. undercard at Pimlico May 17. Settled three wide in third as Fantasy of Flight led from Delightful Quality, the favored advanced in hand for Xavier Perez as they approached the stretch. She took aim on her rivals when set down three-sixteenths from home and proved a much-the-best winner. "I let her do what she always does, which is break good and settle behind horses," explained Perez. "When I asked her to run--to put her on the outside--I did it right away because she doesn’t like to be between horses too much. I tried to get her on the best part of the track, and I did. Approaching the quarter pole, I just shook my reins at her a little bit and she just took off running. Down from the quarter pole to the wire was just an easy jog for her."
