+FRAGRANCE (f, 3, Malibu Moon–Nadeshiko {SW, $255,968}, by Honour and Glory) took the bulk of the play for this debut and ran to the money with a sharp wire-to-wire score at Woodbine. Showing an above-average worktab, capped off by a half-mile gate breeze here in :48 2/5 (17/65) July 29, the $150,000 Keeneland September buy broke alertly as the 8-5 favorite and immediately sprinted clear. Backing off a bit to lead by a length passing a :22.47 quarter, the dark bay cut the corner professionally into the lane and never gave any closers a chance, spurting clear to a 4 3/4-length graduation. Edisto Island (Bellamy Road) completed the exacta. The winner's dam is a full-sister to GSW/MGISP Battle Won and a half to MGSW Imperative (Bernardini). She is responsible for a juvenile full-sister to the winner named Luvutothemoonnback, a yearling filly by Bernardini and a weanling colt by Uncle Mo. She was bred back to Bernardini. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $34,624. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
