MOONSHINE MEMORIES (f, 2, Malibu Moon–Unenchanted Evening, by Unbridled's Song) proved two turns is well within her scope with a decisive tally to increase her perfect record to three. Garnering the 'TDN Rising Star' distinction on GI Pacific Classic S. Day Aug. 19, the $650,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga grad added the GI Del Mar Debutante S. over Piedi Bianchi (Overanalyze) Sept. 2. Dismissed as the 2-1 second choice as the money came in for expensive Baffert maiden winner Alluring Star (Exchange Rate), Moonshine Memories sat off of that one's flank, challenged in the stretch and wore her down to the tune of three lengths in 1:46.32. Piedi Bianchi was third.
