6th-Fair Grounds, $47,000, Msw, 11-27, 2yo, f, 1m 70y, 1:45.79, ft, 3 1/2 lengths.
SOCIAL DILEMMA (f, 2, Medaglia d'Oro–Singing Kitty {MSW & GSP, $398,478}, by Ministers Wild Cat) was let go at debut odds of 21-5, better than twice her morning line of 2-1, and worked out a good trip beneath Colby Hernandez to graduate at first asking going an extended mile Friday afternoon at the Fair Grounds. Four wide around the first turn, the $575,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga buyback stalked the pace outside and poked her nose in front with about a half-mile to travel. Going well on the second turn, she cut the corner into the stretch and came away to take it by 3 1/2 lengths. Stillchargingmaria (Pioneerof the Nile-Stopchargingmaria), a $1.9-million weanling purchase at FTKNOV in 2018, chased three deep approaching the stretch and kept on well to be second at overlaid odds. Spendthrift Farm acquired the three-time stakes winner and GSP Singing Kitty with this filly in utero for $750,000 at Keeneland November in 2017 and the California-bred mare has produced colts by Lord Nelson and Mendelssohn the last two years. Singing Kitty was most recently bred to Into Mischief. Sales history: $575,000 RNA Ylg '19 FTSAUG. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $28,200. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
