Into Mischief Filly Lives Up to Her Name in Churchill Debut


Salty As Can Be | Coady

2nd-Churchill Downs, $99,290, Msw, 9-4, 2yo, f, 6f, 1:10.79, ft.
SALTY AS CAN BE (f, 2, Into Mischief–Theycallmeladyluck {SP}, by Dixie Union), a half-sister to 2018 GI La Troienne S. winner Salty (Quality Road), GISW, $688,500, was purchased by Team Casse for $850,000 out of last year's FTSAUG sale from the Baccari Bloodstock consignment, but her worktab yielded few clues and she was no better than 11-1 despite her impeccable pedigree. Settled in about fifth spot early and punching the breeze three wide, Salty As Can Be rolled up to make a line of three at the quarter pole outside of fellow first-timer Amusing Antics (Super Saver) and pacesetting Quick Munny (Munnings). Amusing Antics came in soon after, bothering the front-runner, but Salty As Can Be would not let her out of her sights and grabbed Amusing Antics on the wire. Lady Traveler (Quality Road) sat a mid-pack trip and finished with good energy to be third. A maternal granddaughter of GSW Vegas Prospector (Crafty Prospector), Salty As Can Be has a yearling half-sister by Medaglia d'Oro. Theycallmeladyluck was covered by Quality Road this year. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $55,144. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
