Dixiana Homebred Off the Mark at Arlington


Elegant Joy | Coady

8th-Arlington, $30,000, Msw, 9-17, 2yo, 5fT, :57.57, fm, 2 lengths.
ELEGANT JOY (f, 2, Kitten's Joy–True Elegance, by Distorted Humor) tuned up for this debut with a strong four-furlong spin from the gate in :48 flat Sept. 8 and was off right at her morning line of 8-1. In the vanguard early, Elegant Joy held the rail chasing from third into the turn, was pulled out three deep at the head of the stretch and kicked on nicely to post a professional two-length victory over the fast-finishing Onyourmarkgetsetgo (Makors Finale). The winner's dam, a $500,000 Keeneland September purchase by Bill Shively's Dixiana Farm, is a daughter of Canadian Horse of the Year and multiple champion Sealy Hill (Point Given), making her a full-sister to Sovereign Award-winning female sprinter Hillaby (Distorted Humor). Sealy Hill is also the dam of GISW and $1.25-million KEESEP grad Cambier Parc (Medaglia d'Oro) and GSWs Belle Hill (Sky Mesa) and Gale Force (Giant's Causeway). True Elegance's yearling Frosted filly was scheduled to sell as hip 1335 during session five at Keeneland Saturday and she is also the dam of a filly foal by Ghostzapper. She was most recently bred to Authentic. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $18,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
