STARTUP MENTALITY (IRE) (f, 3, Kingman {GB}–Fine Time {GB}, by Dansili {GB}), sourced by Chad Brown and owner Klaravich Stables for 300,000gns ($428,654) out of Book 1 at the 2021 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, was the only first-time starter taking on a field of more experienced maidens to open the Haskell S. day card at Monmouth Saturday. Named the 2-1 third choice, the filly broke from the far outside gate and was content to let the rest of the field go in front of her up the backstretch through an opening half in :46.97 before making a sweeping four-wide move around the far turn. Caught the widest of the bunch, Startup Mentality had plenty of momentum with a furlong to run, eagerly ran down late leader Mirabella (Into Mischief), and gained separation to the line to graduate by 1 1/2 lengths.  The second straight winner from her dam, Startup Mentality is out of a full-sister to G1SW Passage of Time (GB) and a half to GSW/MGISP Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and G1SW Timepiece (GB) (Zamindar). This is also the family of European champion older horse Twice Over (GB) (Observatory) and GI Matriarch S. winner Viadera (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}). Fine Time has a 2-year-old Lope de Vega (Ire) filly and a yearling filly by Night of Thunder (Ire). Sales History: 300,000gns Ylg '21 TATOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $33,000.
