LEXI ON THE MOVE (f, 3, Fast Anna–Invalida, by Street Cry {Ire}) took a track-and-trip event restricted to fillies who had previously sold at auction for $60,000 or less by daylight here Feb. 15, and was backed early and often in this tougher spot to go off at even-money. Away on top, the bay sat perched three wide behind a dueling trio through an opening quarter of :21.94. She ranged up ominously after a :45.30 half, and kicked past her rivals over the top en route to a geared-down, 2 3/4-length tally. New York-bred stakes winner My Italian Rabbi (Competitive Edge) completed the exacta. The winner was offered twice at OBS last year–she RNA’d for $47,000 in April after a :10 2/5 move on a windy day that yielded slower times, but then brought $160,000 in June after covering a furlong in :10 flat. Hailing from a Ned Evans family, Lexi on the Move is the first foal out of an unraced daughter of GISW Malibu Prayer (Malibu Moon). She has a 2-year-old half-sister by Will Take Charge and a yearling half-sister by Super Saver. Her dam was barren to Funtastic for 2020. Sales history: $40,000 Ylg ’18 KEESEP; $47,000 RNA 2yo ’19 OBSAPR; $160,000 2yo ’19 OBSOPN. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $90,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
