Take These Chains took all the early money here for this top turf outfit, and drifted up to 5-2 at the off. Beaten for speed out of the blocks, the bay was taken in hand and maneuvered to the rail to bide her time towards the back of the pack. Inching closer while three deep down the backside, she continued to pick off rivals turning for home, but still had some five lengths to make up on the leaders entering the lane. Given her cue by Javier Castellano, Take These Chains quickened impressively, and catapulted past d’Oro Paradise (Medaglia d’Oro) to don cap and gown by 2 1/4 lengths. Well-bred Juddmonte newcomer Assembly (Candy Ride {Arg}) closed to complete the trifecta. According to Trakus data, Take These Chains covered 10 ft. fewer than the runner-up, but anywhere from 12 to 44 ft. more than the rest of the field. Out of 2006 GI Garden City Breeders’ Cup S. runner-up and 2007 GIII Churchill Distaff Turf Mile S. heroine Take the Ribbon, Take These Chains is a half to Bookrunner (Tiznow), G1SP-Ity & GSP-Fr, $149,856. Take the Ribbon produced a Dansili filly last year. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $24,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton. Equineline.com catalogue-style pedigree
