Off at an ultimately generous even money, Mighty Scarlett (Scat Daddy) made light work of things to graduate at second asking on closing day at Keeneland to become the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’.

The chestnut, exiting a runner-up effort on the Tampa Bay Derby undercard Mar. 10, allowed whatever speed there was to clear and was guided down towards the inside to sit fourth with a lap to travel. Allowed to lob along from that position as the pace slackened through the middle stages, she was joined to her outside by her chief market rival Smart Shot (Skipshot) nearing the half-mile marker, but Mighty Scarlett was asked for some run and was alongside pacesetting Dayfa (Tiznow) as they raced around the turn. Held together into the lane by Jose Ortiz, Mighty Scarlett kicked anew into the final furlong and a half and sped away to romp by 4 1/2 decisive lengths. First-starter Brie’s Lucky Charm (Mastercraftsman {Ire}) ran on nicely to finish a highly promising second, while Smart Shot held for third. The win was the 12th from just 22 starters at the boutique meet for trainer Chad Brown.

The winner’s dam was a Group 3 winner and Group 1-placed in Peru, then was repatriated and won the John Rooney Memorial S. at Delaware Park for trainer Michael Matz. Mighty Scarlett’s second dam, also a GSW & G1SP in Peru, was a daughter of GSP Proud Emilia, also the dam of Peruvian champion Domingo (Saint Ballado) and GSW Lucky Emilia (Per) (Vaduz {Per}). Thundering Emilia’s 2016 produce is a US-bred Malibu Moon filly bred on Southern Hemisphere time which has already been sent back to Peru to race. The mare foaled a colt (bred NH time) by Ironicus (Distorted Humor) Apr. 1.
