Orb Filly Goes Two for Two at Gulfstream


Orra Moor | Lauren King

5th-Gulfstream, $45,520, Alw (NW1X)/Opt. Clm ($75,000), 2-10, 3yo, f, 6f, 1:10.94, ft.
ORRA MOOR (f, 3, Orb–Carleton Grinnell, by Royal Academy) overcame a tardy start to score by 3 1/4 lengths here Dec. 22, and was further flattered when a pair of also-rans returned to graduate. She was installed the 2-1 second choice behind Chad Brown-trained Break Curfew (Into Mischief), a debut winner at Belmont back in October who was cutting back off a seventh in the GII Golden Rod S. at Churchill in November. Slow to get going again, the big dark bay was pushed on into fourth leaving the backside as the chalk set the pace. Reeling in her foes willingly around the bend, she came to challenge for command while three deep at the quarter pole. Neither of the rivals to her inside had much of an answer for her, and she pulled away with big strides in the lane to run up the score to 7 3/4 lengths. Wildwood’s Beauty (Kantharos) bested Break Curfew for second. The winner is a half to Royal Song Dancer (Langfuhr), SW, $100,004. Her dam produced a colt by Orb in 2018 before being bred back to Fed Biz. Sales history: $180,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $50,400.
