Carbone | Coady

8th-Oaklawn, $140,000, Alw (NW2L)/Opt. Clm ($80,000), 12-31, 2yo, 1m, 1:38.63, ft, 4 lengths.
CARBONE (c, 2, Mitole–Treasure in Heaven, by Street Sense) was tabbed a 'TDN Rising Star' following a front-running eight-length debut romp going six furlongs at Churchill Downs Nov. 19. Stretching out to a mile for this second start, the 3-5 favorite sprinted right out to the early lead and was unchallenged while loping along through fractions of :23.40 and :47.76. He was let loose approaching the stretch and bound clear to score by four lengths. Lightline (City of Light) was second. Treasure in Heaven produced a colt by Instagrand in 2022, who sold to Larry Best for $250,000 as a weanling at the Fasig-Tipton November sale, and a filly by Yaupon in 2023. She was bred back to Yaupon. The mare is a daughter of Heiligbrodt homebred Richwoman (Successsful Appeal), who won the 2006 GIII Debutante S. The winner's third dam, another Heiligbrodt homebred, is two-time stakes winner Richbabe (Richman). Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $153,000.
