+MACHTREE (c, 2, Kitten’s Joy–Lady Lumberjack {MGSP, $205,200}, by Forestry) stalked a slow pace and held on gamely late to graduate first out at Saratoga. Showing a modest worktab, the $450,000 KEESEP grad tracked the speed from third at the rail through progressively slower splits of :24.99, :51.32 and 1:18.64. Finding room along the inside when the leader drifted wide off the far turn, he struck the lead in deep stretch and staved off Honey Dont (Soldat) by a half-length on the wire. The winner has a yearling half-brother by Pioneerof the Nile and a weanling half-brother by Empire Maker. Lady Lumberjack was bred to Bernardini this spring. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,800.
