Momos (c, 2, Distorted Humor-Inspeight of Us, by Speightstown) kicked off Saturday's card at the Spa with a 'TDN Rising Star' performance.
The :21 breezer at OBS March brought $180,000 from Ironhorse Racing Stable LLC and Secure Investments and was off at odds of 6-1 in this unveiling for Christophe Clement.
He sped through an opening quarter in :22.20 from his inside draw, was under cruise control as they hit the quarter pole and took off in the stretch to run his five rivals off their feet.
It was 6 1/2 lengths back to favored $500,000 OBS March graduate Mo Mischief (Into Mischief) in second. The final time for 5 1/2 furlongs was 1:04.50.
Momos was produced by a half-sister to GISWs Daddys Lil Darling (Scat Daddy) and Mongolian Saturday (Any Given Saturday). The winner's dam, Inspeight of Us, is also represented by an Empire Maker filly of 2019 and she was most recently bred to Audible.
Inspeight of Us, a maiden of two career starts, was purchased by Tami Bobo's Secure Investments for $115,000 as a KEESEP yearling.
