Repole Stable’s Legit (Curlin) romped by 7 1/4 lengths in his career bow at Gulfstream Apr. 19 and made it two in a row Thursday with another decisive score in the slop at Pimlico to become the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’. Running three wide in sixth through an opening quarter in :24.15, the $125,000 KEESEP buy advanced into fourth through a half in :47.73 and angled out wider turning for home. Drawing alongside new leader American Lincoln (Street Sense) in mid-stretch, the 3-5 chalk forged clear late to win by four lengths.
The winner is the first foal out of the unraced Logalina Pompina, a half-sister to GSW and half-million dollar earner Mellow Fellow (Belek). She has since produced the juvenile colt Midnight Reverie (Midnight Lute) and a yearling colt by Lea. The 7-year-old mare was bred back to Will Take Charge.
