LADY DANAE (f, 2, Klimt–Anea, by Unbridled's Song) sparked some deja vu Friday, scoring at 11-1 a week after another Klimt juvenile won first out at the same odds sprinting also on the Saratoga lawn. This :10 flat OBSAPR breezer was bidding to become her freshman sire (by Quality Road)'s eighth winner overall, but was dismissed a bit by the bettors in an event with many viable options. Sitting in midpack while out in the clear, the chestnut revved up out widest spinning for home and kicked on nicely from there to out-finish Bubble Rock (More Than Ready) and open up by two promising lengths. The winner's dam is out of precocious MSW Desire to Excel (Mt. Livermore), second in the 2006 GIII Schuylverille S. here and later the dam of local turf sprint stakes winner Artest (Hard Spun). Anea, by one of Machmer Hall's favorite broodmare sires, sold for $12,000 in 2019 carrying another Klimt filly. She produced a Breaking Lucky colt this season before being bred back to that Florida-based stallion. Sales history: $25,000 Wlg '19 KEENOV; $50,000 Ylg '20 KEESEP; $210,000 2yo '21 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $55,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
