1st-Saratoga, $105,000, Msw, 7-22, 2yo, 5 1/2fT, 1:02.49, fm, head.
APPRAISE (IRE) (c, 2, Kodiac {GB}–Champagne Or Water {Ire} {SW-Ire, $109,065}, by Captain Rio {GB}), given an unconvincing 11-1 chance for his first time to the races, came away in the front group despite mild contact with Inflation Nation (Ire) (Speightstown) at the break. Beat to the lead by both Clubhouse (Speightstown) and Alibi Ike (Munnings), he chased in third into the far turn before coming three wide past the quarter pole. He took over with a furlong to run and, under left-handed urging, held on to just edge out Inflation Nation by a head on the line. This is the female family of MG1SP Endless Drama (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}). The winner has a yearling half-sister by Mehmas (Ire) who is her dam's last reported foal. Sales History: 85,000gns Wlg '20 TATFOA; 180,000gns Ylg '21 TATOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $57,750. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
