Cathryn Sophia proved that her sparkling debut was no fluke, capturing Laurel’s Gin Talking S. and becoming the newest “TDN Rising Star.” Campaigned by the trainer and owner who campaigned dual-Classic winners Smarty Jones and Afleet Alex, respectively, the bay earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 92 for her 12 3/4 length romp going six furlongs at Park Oct. 30 and was pounded down to heavy favoritism to remain perfect in this stakes debut. Away in good order, she coasted along on the lead through fractions of :23.02 and :46.63. Kept under minimal urging turning for home, she widened in the final furlong and reported home well clear of the others. The winner’s second dam is GSW & GISP Belterra (Unbridled), herself a half-sister to MGSW Royal Haven (Hail Emperor). Cathryn Sophia was acquired for $30,000 as a Fasig-Tipton Midlantic yearling.
