First Winner for Keen Ice at Indiana Grand


Icy Storm (inside) holds on | Coady

4th-Indiana Grand, $31,000, Msw, 5-3, 2yo, 5f, 1:00.81, gd, neck.
ICY STORM (c, 2, Keen Ice–Downton My Lady, by Pioneerof the Nile) was sent off at 7-2 to become the first winner for his 2015 GI Travers S.-winning freshman sire (by Curlin). Part of a five-way skirmish for the early lead, the dark bay colt sat second as Gormleys Got Game (Gormley) broke away from the pack after a quarter in :22.71. He surged by that foe inside the final furlong and just held off the late rush of Atta Boy Anthony (Karun {Ven}) to graduate by a neck. Gormleys Got Game was fourth.  Downton My Lady produced a filly by Ransom the Moon last year. Again in foal to that stallion, she sold for $6,000 at last year's Keeneland November sale. Her then-weanling filly sold for $1,700 at that same auction. Click for the chart. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $18,600.
