$700K Curlin Filly Takes Career Debut at Del Mar

Curlin, sire of Del Mar winner Grace Adler | Sarah Andrew

2nd-Del Mar, $70,500, Msw, 7-31, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.67, ft, 3/4 length.
GRACE ADLER (f, 2, Curlin–Our Khrysty {GSW, $313,260}, by Newfoundland), sent off the 2-5 choice for this unveiling, broke outward for the six hole, but rallied into contention before settling into fourth as Sugar Sugar (Twirling Candy) led through a :22.80 half. Asked for more by Flavien Prat and giving it passing the quarter pole, the chestnut was the widest of three with Valentina Ghada (Practical Joke) and Sugar Sugar turning for home, ground to the front in the final sixteenth and got the best of Valentina Ghada by 3/4 of a length at the wire. The winner is out of a half-sister to GISW Bullsbay (Tiznow), who is also responsible for GSP Virginia key (Distorted Humor), an unraced 3-year-old colt by Malibu Moon named American Smooth and a yearling colt by Into Mischief. This season, she foaled a filly by Uncle Mo and was bred back to War Front. Sales history: $700,000 Ylg '20 FTKSEL. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $42,000.
