JAZZIQUE (IRE) (f, 2, Kingman%20(GB)&log=#tot">Kingman {GB}–Love To Dance {Ire}, by Sadler's Wells) became the first 2-year-old winner in North America for her second crop sire (by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) when she prevailed in the seventh race Wednesday in her career debut at the Spa. Away at 7-1 odds, the bay tracked well off of a torrid pace battle between 41-1 shot Coin the Phrase (Goldencents) and favored Nic and Zoe (Street Boss). After a sizzling first quarter in :21.27 and half-mile in :44.32, jockey Irad Ortiz went to work on Jazzique and she surged to the wire down the center of the track in tandem with Selflessly (More Than Ready), edging her stablemate for a 1-2 finish for the Chad Brown barn. She is the second winner out of her Group-stakes placed dam, who is a half-sister to two European champions, including the outstanding European Horse of the Year Dylan Thomas (Ire) (Danehill) and Champion 2-year-old filly Queen's Logic (Ire) (Grand Logic) as well as to G1 One Thousand Guineas heroine Homecoming Queen (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
