GISW Cavorting’s First Foal Gets Up in Churchill Unveiling

|

Clairiere, the first foal out of GISW Cavorting (pictured), wins at Churchill | Sarah Andrew

6th-Churchill Downs, $84,814, Msw, 10-25, 2yo, f, 1 1/16m, 1:44.85, ft, 1/2 length.
CLAIRIERE (f, 2, Curlin–Cavorting {MGISW, $2,063,000}, by Bernardini), given a 7-2 chance for trainer Steve Asmussen in this unveiling, was four wide into the first turn and remained under restraint despite showing some eagerness to get on with it early. Three wide on the far turn, she began to close on the leading pack, headed by the Norm Casse-trainee Super Quick (Super Saver). Fanned out eight wide turning for home, the bay inched ever closer to the game leader throughout the length of the stretch and got up just in time to peg that rival on the wire. Clairiere is the first foal out of three-time Grade I winner, multi-millionaire and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Cavorting. A daughter of GSW Promenade Girl (Carson City), Cavorting is a half-sister to GSW Moon Colony (Uncle Mo) and MGSP ‘TDN Rising Star’ Thirstforlife (Stay Thirsty). After having produced a filly by Medaglia d’Oro last term, she followed up with a full-brother to Clairiere this season. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,092.
