CASUAL (f, 3, Curlin–Lady Tak {MGISW, $1,160,782}, by Mutakddim), off at 9-2 following a string of sharp morning drills, settled just behind the leading draft led by Millennium Force (Declaration of War) through a quick :21.60 quarter. Still cruising through a half mile in :44.85, Casual was locked and loaded entering the home turn, but was still blocked behind a wall of horses. Finally finding the sliver of daylight she needed, she cut her way through rivals in the stretch, and forged to the front in the final strides to score by a half-length over Silverbella (Tapizar) with favored Cynical Girl (Strong Mandate) third. Out of MGISW and millionaire Lady Tak, the winner is a half-sister to SW & GSP Japanese runner and millionaire A Shin Spartan (Zensational, $1,234,624), and SW Melody Lady (Unbridled’s Song), who is the dam of SW & GSP Buy Sell Hold (Violence). Barren in 2018 and 2019, Lady Tak produced a colt by Maclean’s Music this season. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
