VIA STRATA, f, 4, by Street Cry (Ire) 1st Dam: Golden Velvet (MGSW & GISP-US, SP-Fr, $333,298), by Seeking the Gold 2nd Dam: Caress, by Storm Cat 3rd Dam: La Affirmed, by La Mesa Via Strata made her first two career starts over the Aqueduct inner track, where she romped by 5 3/4 lengths on debut going six panels Dec. 13 and annexed an allowance at a mile Feb. 7. Bet down to even-money favoritism to remain unbeaten, the Godolphin homebred broke on top and set an uncontested pace through splits of :23.80 and :48.06. Seemingly effortlessly, the dark bay opened up on the turn and stormed home to win by eight lengths. Bella Veloce (Zensational) was second. Via Strata is the first foal out of MGSW Golden Velvet, who is out of MGSW Carees 9Storm Cat), making her a half-sister to GI Hopeful S. winner Sky Mesa (Pulpit). Via Strata's 3-year-old half-sister Innovative Idea (Bernardini) is stakes placed for Godolphin and Eoin Harty. Golden Velvet has a Hard Spun yearling and a Street Cry (Ire) weanling.
