Somewhere¬†(f, 2, Quality Road‚??Silver Lullaby, by Najran) sparkled beneath the Twin Spires at second asking to earn her¬†‚??TDN Rising Star‚??¬†badge Friday afternoon.
The gray took plenty of money at 3-1 for the Buff Bradley barn in her June 1 Churchill debut and reported home a better-than-it-looked fifth after a slow start and wide middle move going five furlongs. Somewhere trained smartly in the interim, including a four-furlong move in :47 (2/42) June 15 and a three-furlong bullet in :35 3/5 (1/28) in the Churchill slop June 24.
Off at 7-2 this time, the half-sister to 2014 GIII Sanford S. winner Big Trouble (Tiz Wonderful) broke sharply and was on the engine through an opening quarter in :21.82. Somewhere began to blast away from her 10 rivals on the far turn while under a nice hold and kept on motoring down the stretch to graduate impressively by 5 3/4 lengths.¬†My Candy Crush¬†(Goldencents) was second.
Somewhere is a half-sister to the aforementioned Big Trouble (Tiz Wonderful), GSW, $235,000; Silver Lining John (Tiz Wonderful), SP, $221,025; and Silver Sidney (Sidney‚??s Candy), SP, $134,502.
Silver Lullaby had a Will Take Charge Filly in 2017 and a Gemologist filly in 2018. Silver Lullaby, a two-time winner for Four Roses Thoroughbreds, brought $52,000 from Berkey Bloodstock, agent, in foal to Silver Wagon at the 2008 KEENOV Sale.
Somewhere‚??s second dam Million Stories (Exclusive Native) is a half-sister to 1989 G1 Dubai Poule d‚??Essai des Pouliches-French One Thousand Guineas heroine Pearl Bracelet (Lyphard).
