HOFFA’S UNION (g, 3, Union Rags–Malibu Red {SP, $141,684}, by Malibu Moon), unveiled at 7-1, seized the early advantage, ticking off comfortable splits of :23.71 and :48.57. The $11,000 EASMAY buy was in a race of his own in the lane, cruising clear, while drifting out a few paths, to win by a whopping 15 1/2 lengths. Favored Candy Store (Twirling Candy) was best of the rest in second. Hoffa’s Union is the first foal out of Malibu Red, who is also responsible for a juvenile filly by Cairo Prince and a Frosted filly born earlier this year. The winner hails from the family of last term’s GI American Oaks winner Competitionofideas (Speightstown). Sales history: $40,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP; $11,000 2yo ’18 EASMAY.
