Guarana Takes The Lead at FTKNOV


Guarana | Fasig-Tipton

'TDN Rising Star' Guarana (Ghostzapper–Magical World, by Distorted Humor) shot to the top of the heap at Fasig-Tipton November Tuesday evening, hammering for a whopping $4.4 million. Consigned as hip 182 by Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency as agent to dissolve a partnership, the 5-year-old was offered in foal to the all-conquering Into Mischief and was hammered down to Hill 'n' Dale. Guarana earned no-brainer 'Rising Star' status with a 14 3/4-length debut stroll through the Keeneland slop and backed up the effort with a six-length defeat of GI Longines Kentucky Oaks heroine Serengeti Empress (Alternation) in the GI Acorn S. at Belmont. Wire-to-wire winner of the GI CCA Oaks in her lone attempt at nine furlongs, the bay was runner-up in the GI Cotillion S. and was perfect in two starts at four, including a half-length success in the GI Madison S. back at Keeneland.
