IRISH CONSTITUTION (f, 2, Constitution#tot">Constitution–D'wild Ride {MSW, $622,841}, by D'wildcat) had a lot of buzz heading into this debut and was backed down to 7-2 off a 12-1 morning-line quote. The chestnut dueled for early control through a :22.81 first quarter before gaining a length advantage. Three wide turning for home, she was confronted by Party at Page's (Gemologist) to her inside and was briefly headed by that rival, but battled back in the final strides to score by a nose. The winner's dam produced a Bodemeister colt in 2019 and an Always Dreaming colt this year. Sales history: $40,000 Wlg '18 KEENOV; $165,000 Ylg '19 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $34,100.
