Scat Daddy’s Toinette Upsets Rushing Fall in Edgewood

|

Scat Daddy | Coolmore

Toinette (f, 3, Scat Daddy–I Bet Toni Knows, by Sunriver) upset previously unbeaten Rushing Fall (More Than Ready) with a dramatic late-flying rally in the GIII Edgewood S. at Churchill Downs Friday. Heavily favored Rushing Fall raced keenly from her outside post and after refusing to settle off the pace into the first turn, pulled her way to vie for the early lead. She took over after a half-mile in :48.21, but was quickly joined by Daddy Is a Legend (Scat Daddy). Those two powered clear of the field in a ding-dong battle down the lane, only to have Toinette close furiously down the center of the course to just get a neck in front on the wire. Rushing Fall was second and Daddy Is a Legend was third. Toinette, fourth on debut over the main track at Del Mar Nov. 26, moved to the turf to graduate by the length of her nose Jan. 28 down the hill at Santa Anita and added a 1 1/16-mile allowance over the Keeneland lawn Apr. 11. The filly was a $110,000 KEESEP graduate.
