OUTSHINE (c, 2, Malibu Moon–Life Lesson {MSP, $153,127}, by Unbridled’s Song) was favored at 6-5 in this debut and ran to the money with a decisive score in the slop. Saving ground in fourth through a :22.77 opening quarter, the $625,000 KEESEP buy launched a four-wide bid on the backstretch run. Taking control in mid-stretch, the bay splashed clear late to win by 2 3/4 lengths over Gump (Brethren). Outshine is a full-brother to $750,000 KEENOV purchase Bowie, a two-time winner for LNJ Foxwoods. The winner is the most recent produce out of MSP Life Lesson, a daughter of MGSW Wander Mom (Maria’s Mon), who was last bred to Honor Code. Sales history: $260,000 Wlg ’16 KEENOV. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $50,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
