Fresh off the heels of a game debut second behind the GIII Adena Springs Beaumont S.-bound Lightstream (Harlan’s Holiday) with a gaudy 98 Beyer Speed Figure at Gulfstream Park Mar. 6, Kareena stamped herself as a filly with a very bright future of her own in the day’s third race. Adding Lasix here, the 1-5 favorite forced the early issue from the outside through a scorching opening quarter in :21.90. Under a snug hold by Paco Lopez while beginning to edge clear entering the far turn, she let it out another notch under minimal urging in the stretch and had five lengths to spare over Julerette (Successful Appeal) at the wire. The winner’s dam India–a half-sister to bluehen mare Pilfer (Deputy Minister), the dam of GISWs To Honor and Serve (Bernardini) and Angela Renee (Bernardini)–has a 2-year-old colt by Frankel (GB) and a yearling filly by Tapit. The 2006 GII Fitz Dixon Cotillion Breeders’ Cup H. heroine was bred back to Bernardini. Sales history: $400,000 Ylg ’14 FTSAUG. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $44,000.
