+SKYLER'S SCRAMJET (c, 2, Creative Cause–Abundantly Blessed {SW & GSP, $217,529}, by Phone Trick) was dismissed at 19-1 off a solid-looking set of drills over the strip, but proved ready to roll with a powerful front-running performance. Quickly in front and clear, the juvenile clicked off splits of :22.30 and :45.91. Ground-saving fellow firster Miggsy (Hard Spun) looked like he might make a race of it approaching the straight, but the pacesetter hit the after burners and kicked home an impressive four-length winner. Skyler's Scramjet is the 15th individual graduate for his freshman sire (by Giant's Causeway). The winner is a half to Heaven on Hold (Deputy Commander), MSW, $119,990; and Arcadian (Songandaprayer), SW. His stakes-winning dam produced a filly from the final crop of the late Scat Daddy this year and was bred back to Graydar. Sales history: $25,000 Ylg '15 FTKOCT; $70,000 2yo '16 EASMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
