Verylittlecents (Goldencents) survived an objection to lead home a one-two finish for her sire in Sunday's Runhappy Ellis Park Debutante S.. Fourth behind GIII Schuylerville S. heroine Pretty Birdie (Bird Song) in her Churchill unveiling June 18, the :10 flat OBSMAR breezer broke through by daylight second out going five panels here July 11, good for a standout 70 Beyer Speed Figure. Right to the front under Joe Talamo, the bay doled out splits of :23.19 and :46.30 while going easily. They stacked up behind her rounding the bend, and Verylittlecents entered the stretch a bit off the fence, prompting Golden Sights to go for a rail run. Verylittlecents was guided back down inside to close that door, and she kept finding from there to prove clearly best in a time that would would prove significantly quicker than what the boys would go in one race later. The runner-up's rider lodged an objection, but he never really had to stop riding and the stewards made no change. The winner's dam, who is a half to GSW No Dozing (Union Rags), produced a Brody's Cause filly last term.
