SHEDARESTHEDEVIL (f, 2, Daredevil–Starship Warpspeed, by Congrats) overcame a slow start and leveled off strongly down the lane to graduate on debut Thursday at Churchill, becoming the first North American winner for her freshman sire (by More Than Ready). Flashing consistent speed in her morning activity, highlighted by a half-mile bullet in :47 2/5 (1/48) May 16 at Keeneland, the $100,000 Keeneland November buy was backed as the 13-5 second favorite here and broke tardily from her rail draw. Quickly advancing into contention behind pacesetting Collude (Secret Circle) past a :22.58 quarter, the bay was angled off the inside into the three path nearing the turn for home. Drawing on even terms in mid-stretch, she forged by Collude a furlong out and skipped clear to a 3 1/2-length success over that rival in 1:04.84. The winner, who follows up the first worldwide victor by her sire Wednesday at Hamilton in Great Britain, has a yearling half-sister by Outwork and a half-sister of this season by Speightster.
