Frosted Filly Sharp in Churchill Debut

Sharp Tune | Coady

3rd-Churchill Downs, $118,574, Msw, 5-26, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.89, ft, 2 lengths.
SHARP TUNE (f, 2, Frosted–Classy Tune {MSP, $135,504}, by Maclean's Music) made easy work of her debut with an impressive wire-to-wire score as the public's 4-5 favorite. The bay filly broke smartly from her inside post position and went right to the front, easily opening up on the field behind her with Intermittent (Bernardini) closest and stalking to her outside. Sharp Tune extended her lead as she rounded the bend and widened off even more into the stretch, opening up several lengths under vigorous handling and holding off the late challenging Foolish Front Fifi (Coal Front) to win by two at the wire. She is the second foal and first winner out of her multiple stakes-placed dam, who also produced an unnamed yearling colt by Violence and a filly by Hard Spun this year. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $69,000.
