+BUY SELL HOLD (f, 2, Violence–Melody Lady {SW}, by Unbridled’s Song) broke on top and led all the way to become the first winner for her freshman sire (by Medaglia d’Oro) at Keeneland. Showing a pair of unassuming local breezes, the gray was given a 53-10 chance and came out running to lead in the early stages. Pressed by Vida Leva Eu (Tizdejavu) passing a :22.57 quarter, Buy Sell Hold shook loose from that one in early stretch and rolled home 4 1/2 lengths to the good of her pace companion. Classy Music (Maclean’s Music) finished a green third, while even-money Wesley Ward favorite Ultima D (Scat Daddy) was fifth. The victress is the first foal out of a stakes-winning dam who foaled her full-brother last term and produced a Bayern colt Apr. 5. Second dam Lady Tak (Mutakddim) captured the GI Test S. in 2003.
