GHALIA (f, 3, Medaglia d’Oro–Verdana Bold {GSW, $331,297}, by Rahy) emerged from an early scramble for the lead to show the way through fractions of :22.46 and :45.61 and found more when confronted by a rival to her outside on the turn. Digging in along the rail in the stretch, the $600,000 KEENOV weanling purchase forged clear to score decisively over a late-running Modacious (Uncle Mo). Ghalia, a $600,000 KEENOV weanling, delivered as the 3-5 favorite in her career unveiling going a half-furlong shorter Jan. 22. Her third dam is SW & MGISP Harbour Club (Danzig).
