GRATEFUL (IRE) (f, 3, Galileo {Ire}–Tepin {GISW-Can, G1SW-Eng, MGISW-US, $4,437,918}, by Bernstein), the third foal out of the six-times top-level-winning dual champion turf mare, had not been seen since finishing ninth in this track's seven-furlong conditions race in August in which A Lilac Rolla (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}) and Opera Singer (Justify) were first and second.

Racing in mid-pack early, the 13-2 shot stayed on strongly to reel in stablemate Mother Nature (Ire) (Justify) in the final strides and prevail by a short head. “She has an unbelievable pedigree. She got a little setback last year and we didn't get to run her,” Aidan O'Brien said. “She just took a bit of time to come and Wayne said there is a lot to come from her. We'll let her step up and progress away and he said she'd be very happy to step back in trip.”

Tepin was famously purchased by M.V. Magnier for $8 million at Fasig-Tipton November in 2017. She has a 2-year-old colt Delacroix (Ire) by Dubawi (Ire) and is kin to the four-times graded-stakes scorer Vyjack (Into Mischief). Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $13,055.
