PALM COTTAGE (f, 3, American Pharoah–Walkwithapurpose {MSW & GSP, $297,210}, by Candy Ride {Arg}), installed the 4-5 top choice in this first go, broke a step slow, but quickly put her self into a close-up third as Upandcomingstar (Into Mischief), prompted by Strong Silent (Wicked Strong), led through an opening quarter mile in :22.53. Hemmed in along the rail exiting the far turn, Palm Cottage swung out three wide turning for home, ground her way to the fore with a sixteenth to go and crossed the wire a half-length in front of Strong Silent with Upandcomingstar rounding out the trifecta. The winner is a half to Where Paradise Lay (Into Mischief), SW, $199,250 and SP Whispering Pines (Uncle Mo), $111,947. Dam multiple stakes winner Walkwithapurpose is out of Lightning Lydia (Broad Brush), a full-sister to Grade I winner Shossberg. She produced a Union Rags filly in 2019 followed by a Malibu Moon colt last season. Earlier this term, she dropped an Omaha Beach filly. Sales history: $575,000 Ylg '19 KEESEP.
