American Pharoah's Window Shopping Runs Away in Maiden Breaking Score


Window Shopping Benoit

10th-Santa Anita, $68,000, Msw, 3-17, 3yo, f, 1m (off turf), 1:37.95, ft, 16 1/2 lengths.
WINDOW SHOPPING (f, 3, American Pharoah–Delightful Joy {GSW, $179,200}, by Tapit), last seen sandwiched at the start and bravely making up ground to take sixth in her Nov. 13 juvenile unveiling at Del Mar–a race yielding SW Broadway Girls (Army Mule), showed a new dimension here in this off-turf contest. Leaving the blocks at 3-5 and stalking from cover early in fourth, she moved up to press the leaders at the half-way point and dueled into the far bend as a 1:10.74 split popped up. Given her cue and taking over at the three-eighths pole, she left her rivals behind as her advantage widened to an eye-catching 16 1/2 lengths on the wire. Tea Tree Bay (GB) (Tasleet {GB}) bested the field for the minor awards. Out of GIII Monmouth Oaks victress Delightful Joy, Window Shopping commanded $700,000 at KEESEP from her connections via agent Steven Young. Her dam is herself a daughter of GISP & MGSW Graeme Six (Graeme Hall), making her a half-sister to SW Seymourdini (Bernardini). This is the female family of no less than eight other black-type earners. Sales history: $700,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $40,700. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
