+BLUE COLLAR (f, 2, Majestic Warrior–Ushuaia, by Cape Canaveral) blew up the tote at odds of 46-1 to don cap and gown in this career bow. Stalking from second off opening splits of :23.21 and :48.71, the bay displayed some greeness, lugging in slightly, as she seized command exiting the bend. Kept to task by Ricardo Santana, Jr., she skipped clear down the lane and held off a late surge from Juenesse Doree (Dream Ahead) to win by 3/4 of a length. The winner's year-older full-sister Majestic Island, campaigned by these same connections, did not start at two, but broke her maiden on the Indiana lawn last out Sept. 20. Ushuaia's yearling colt by Flat Out brought $50,000 at the recent Keeneland September sale and she produced an Uncle Mo colt Apr. 27 of this year. She was bred back to Shackleford. Sales history: $27,000 RNA Ylg '15 KEESEP; $59,000 RNA 2yo '16 EASMAY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
