Homebred sophomores from three leading operations dot the entries for a typically competitive Gulfstream maiden allowance. Stuart Janney III sends out BAR HARBOR (Orb), a half-brother to SP In the Lee (Tapit), whose Grade III-winning dam Quiet Harbor (Silver Deputy) is a half-sister to MGSW/MGISP sire Ironicus (Distorted Humor); MGSW On Leave (War Front); GSWs Norumbega (Tiznow) and Hunting (Coronado's Quest); and MGSP Minister's Joy (Deputy Minister). Another half-sister to Quiet Harbor, Silviculture (Forestry), is the dam of GSW Onus (Blame). G. Watts Humphrey Jr.'s Spiritus Invictus (War Front&log=">War Front) is the first produce from Grade I-winning turf distaffer Centre Court (Smart Strike), herself a half-sister to GSW Ravel (Fusaichi Pegasus), now a sire in India. The SP third dam Net Dancer (Nureyev) produced Japanese MSW Eagle Cafe (Gulch). Glencrest Farm is represented by Icarius (Quality Road), the first foal out of 2011 GII Demoiselle S. upsetter Disposablepleasure (Giacomo), who was RNAd for $725K carrying this colt in utero at KEENOV in 2015. Disposablepleasure's half-sister Romantic Hideaway (City Zip) was a stakes winner and Grade III-placed prior to her untimely passing in 2010. TJCIS PPs

It all comes full circle for owners Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum and trainer Phil Schoenthal in the form of the debut-making MISS GUIDED (Speightstown&hid=26779">Speightstown). The Maryland-bred dark bay is the first foal out of Miss Behaviour (Jump Start), who earned an 84 Beyer on her five-furlong debut and who provided these owners and this trainer with their lone graded wins to date in the 2013 GII Matron S. and 2014 GIII Charles Town Oaks. Miss Behaviour retired with five wins from 12 starts and earnings in excess of $790,000. TJCIS PPs
