10th-Churchill Downs, $120,000, Msw, 5-20, 3yo/up, f/m, 5 1/2f, 1:04.98, ft, head.
LADY IRENE (f, 3, Kantharos–Leslie's Lady {Broodmare Of The Year, SW, $187,014}, by Tricky Creek), racing in her second start but under Lasix for the first time, was a debut third last fall at Churchill Downs before being turned out for the winter. Sent on her way here as the 6-5 heavy favorite, the bay filly dueled early with Little Hot Mess (Army Mule), then backed off before the far turn. Saving her strength, the homebred began to make up ground, put away her adversary just before the eighth pole and then fended off a late charge by Driana (Kantharos) to graduate by a head. Part of a classy family, the winner is a half-sister to Mendelssohn (Scat Daddy), Hwt.-UAE- at 9 1/2 – 11 f., GISW-USA, GSW-UAE, SW-Ire, G1SP-Eng, $2,542,137, multiple leading sire Into Mischief (Harlan's Holiday), GISW, $597,080 and superstar Beholder (Henny Hughes), MGISW, $6,156,600. She is her dam's last recorded progeny. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $81,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
