Honor D Lady (f, 3, Honor Code–Complicated, by Blame) overtook pacesetting Ancient Peace (War Front) in deep stretch and kicked clear to score by 2 1/2 lengths in the GIII Remington Park Oaks Sunday night. The 7-1 shot sat just off the early leaders while three wide around the first turn and down the backstretch. She began to reel in Ancient Peace approaching the stretch and finally got that better of that stubborn foe in the waning strides before pulling away to the wire.
The dark bay filly, making just her second start on conventional dirt, ended her juvenile campaign with a third-place effort over the synthetic surface at Woodbine in the GIII Mazarine S. and won the Honey Ryder S. over the lawn at Gulfstream in her sophomore debut in May. Third over Gulfstream's Tapeta in the June 10 Martha Washington S., she was runner-up in the July 1 GIII Selene S. and was coming off a 10th-place effort in the Aug. 4 GIII Saratoga Oaks Invitational.
Out of Complicated, Honor D Lady is a half-sister to stakes winner Churchtown (Air Force Blue), as well as recent GI Natalma S. runner-up Simply in Front (Summer Front). She has a weanling half-sister by War Front and a yearling half-sister by Omaha Beach who sold for $750,000 at last month's Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sale. Her third dam is multiple Grade I winner Educated Risk (Mr. Prospector).
