Maclean's Music Firster Runs To Her Price Tag at Del Mar


Dance to the Music at OBS | ThoroStride

7th-Del Mar, $71,500, Msw, 7-24, 2yo, f, 5 1/2f, 1:04.44, ft, 4 3/4 lengths.
DANCE TO THE MUSIC (f, 2, Maclean's Music–Beautified, by Congrats), apparently chilly-on-the-tote at 6-1, caught a flyer out of the gate and never gave her rivals a chance, streaking to a comfortable debut success Saturday at Del Mar. The scopey chestnut jumped right into the bridle and took them along at a good clip, covering the first couple of furlongs in a sharp :22.19. Galloping along on her own courage on the turn, Dance to the Music cut the corner into the lane, was a touch tardy in switching her legs, but took off when she did to take it by 4 3/4 lengths over Bicameral (Constitution). Walnut Stream Enterprises, a pinhooking partnership led by 2-year-old consignor Paul Sharp, snapped up the filly for a mere $40,000 at Keeneland September last fall. Seven months later, the long-striding chestnut was hammered down to Red Baron's Barn and Rancho Temescal for $575,000 at OBS this past April after breezing in a bullet :10 flat. The winner's dam had a colt by Bolt d'Oro this year. Sales history: $40,000 Ylg '20 KEESEP; $575,000 2yo '21 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $42,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
