+CLEVER GIRL (f, 2, Biondetti–Classic Approval {MSP, $109,430}, by With Approval) found cover in eighth while saving all the real estate past the wire the first time. The 8-1 shot made up some ground up the fence through a half-mile in :48.44 and enjoyed a run of luck, as that gap stayed open until the head of the home straight. Shifted off the fence three wide, the $150,000 KEENOV weanling split horses inside the final furlong and quickly outfooted her rivals, dashing clear to win by about 3 1/2 lengths over Susie's Daddy (Scat Daddy). Clever Girl is the sixth winner for her freshman sire (by Bernardini). She is a half to Gulch Approval (Gulch), MGSW & GISP, $593,004; Rusty Slipper (Lemon Drop Kid), MGSW & GISP, $332,393; and Approval Rating (Lemon Drop Kid), SW & MGSP, $302,772. Classic Approval foaled a Soldat colt this term and was covered to He's Had Enough. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $32,700. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
