+MENTALITY (f, 2, Freud–Lemon Drop’s Love, by Lemon Drop Kid), a $40,000 purchase at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga NY-Bred Yearling Sale, was let go at 6-1 for this debut despite her trainer’s high success rate with juvenile firsters. Rushing up to seize control from stablemate Kitty Kat Kate (Scat Daddy), the bay blazed through early fractions of :22.23 and :45.55, and held off a late run from firster Escapade (More Than Ready) to win by 3/4 of a length. The winner is a full to Lovely Syn, MSW, $202,200. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $45,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
