GUARDIAN MOON (f, 2, Declaration of War–Elatha, by Malibu Moon) recorded a professional 1 1/4-length debut victory over the Saratoga lawn Thursday. The 7-5 favorite pressed the pace through an opening quarter in :22.27. The bay filly stuck her head in front at the top of the stretch and was clear through a quarter in :45.98. She turned back a mild challenge from Herald Angel (Exaggerator) late to win with authority. Guardian Moon is the first foal out of Elatha, who was bred to champion Gun Runner this spring. The mare also has a yearling filly by First Samurai. The winner's third dam is Misty Dancer (Lyphard), who produced Quiet Dance (Quiet American), the dam of champion Saint Liam and Quiet Giant (Giant's Causeway), dam of Gun Runner.
