Fastnet Rock Filly Storms to Debut Win at Saratoga


Pizza Bianca | Sarah Andrew

5th-Saratoga, $100,000, Msw, 7-22, 2yo, f, 1 1/16mT, 1:46.88, gd, 3/4 length.
PIZZA BIANCA (f, 2, Fastnet Rock {Aus}–White Hot {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}), sent off at 5-1, settled well back in last as Hope Over Fear (Cupid) took the field through fractions of :24.88 and :50.53. Expand the Map (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) made an eye-catching move on the far turn and Pizza Bianca shadowed the move of that favorite before unleashing a powerful rally to inhale that foe in deep stretch and graduate by three-quarter lengths. Pizza Bianca is the first foal out of the unraced White Hot, who is a full-sister to group winner and Group 1 placed Dawn Patrol (Ire) and a half to G1 Epsom Derby winner Pour Moi (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}) and multiple Group 1 placed Gagnoa (Ire) (Sadler's Wells). The 8-year-old mare produced a colt by Uncle Mo this year and was bred back to Not This Time. Breeder Bobby Flay purchased White Hot for 1,250,000gns as a yearling at the 2014 Tattersalls October sale. Flay's breeding program has also been represented this year by 'TDN Rising Star' and GIII Dwyer S. winner First Captain (Curlin), who is a son of America (A.P. Indy).
