BY GEORGE (c, 2, Into Mischief–Phoenician Moon {SW}, by Malibu Moon), given a 5-1 chance in this debut run for a barn firing on all cylinders with its firsters, was hustled out from his rail draw and maintained a narrow advantage through a :23.23 opening quarter and :47.64 half-mile. The $190,000 KEESEP yearling purchase took no prisoners from there and bounded clear impressively in the lane to don cap and gown by 5 1/4 lengths over Too Boss (El Padrino). Heavily favored firster Inspiration Point (California Chrome), a $725,000 OBS April purchase trained by Todd Pletcher, offered little while a well-beaten fifth. By George is a half to Arizona Moon (Macho Uno), MSP, $155,152. The winner's dam, also responsible for a Runhappy filly of 2019, was bred to Mitole for 2021. Sales history: $190,000 Ylg '19 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $44,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
