ON A SESSION (c, 2, Noble Mission {GB}–Destiny Calls {MSW-US, $644,220}, by With Approval), the first winner for his freshman sire (by Galileo {Ire}) when successful going five panels at Lyon-Parilly on debut last time May 10, was shuffled back to race at the tail of the field after breaking in the front rank here. Coming under pressure at the top of the straight, the 7-10 pick kept on strongly under mainly whipless rousting in the closing stages to prevail by 3/4 of a length from Jamala (Fr) (Evasive {GB}). Full-brother to a filly foal and half to a yearling filly by Paynter, the bay is one of four winners for six-time stakes scorer Destiny Calls (With Approval), herself a half-sister to the stakes-winning duo You’llbeinmyheart (Broad Brush) and Nowandforevermore (Sky Classic), from a family which features G1SW sire and dual champion juvenile Storm Bird (Northern Dancer). Sales history: $50,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP; £60,000 RNA 2yo ’18 GOFAPR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, €21,000. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
