+MAYA MALIBU (f, 2, Malibu Moon–Island Sand {GISW, $1,182,777}, by Tabasco Cat) was backed down to 3-5 favoritism for her first go. Settled near the back of the compact field, she swung out turning for home, took over in the stretch and rolled home an easy six-length winner over Mary Costa (Malibu Moon). Blue Union Rags (Union Rags) rounded out the trifecta. Len Riggio’s My Meadowview Farm went to $4.2 million to acquire GI Acorn S. winner Island Sand in foal to A.P. Indy at the 2007 Keeneland November sale. She failed to produce in both 2016 and 2017, but was most recently bred to Into Mischief. The winner is a half to Midnite Poppa (Unbridled’s Song), SP, $181,050. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $20,400. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
