Overprepared earns J“TDN Rising Star” J status with this decisive career debut. The $125,000 FTKOCT yearling breezed :10 2/5 as a juvenile at OBSMAR and was snapped up by Mike Repole for $310,000--the third most expensive of her sire's 2-year-olds to sell this year--from the consignment of Niall Brennan. Off at 7-2, she stalked the pacesetter in second from her wide draw through a :22.65 opening quarter. The bay took over with authority around the bend and clocked a :46.54 half mile. Three wide into the lane, Overprepared put her stamp on the proceedings to win by 3 1/2 lengths under a hand ride over Eloquent Tribute (Tapit). The final time for the seven furlongs was 1:11.59. Right Decision ran fourth. The 2-year-old is the ninth winner for her freshman sire (by Elusive Quality) and she is a half to Shadow Cast (Smart Strike), GISW, $923,751. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $45,000.
