Munnings Filly Graduates Via DQ in Arcadia



2nd-Santa Anita, $67,856, Msw, 6-19, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.96, ft, 13 1/2 lengths.
EDA (f, 2, Munnings–Show Me, by Lemon Drop Kid) summoned $550,000 from Donato Lanni on behalf of this owner at OBS March after breezing in :10 flat on the Ocala venue's synthetic surface. She was dispatched as the 21-10 second choice in this career bow behind 11-10 stablemate Censorship (Tonalist), who brought $300,000 from longtime Baffert clients Pegram, Watson and Weitman at the same auction. Chasing from second as Ko Olina (Stanford) put up a :22.53 first quarter, the the bay confronted that foe turning for home. The pair drew well clear of the field as they battled it out to the wire, with Ko Olina crossing first by a desperate nose. It was 13 1/2 lengths back to the next horse. However, following a stewards' inquiry, Ko Olina was disqualified and placed second for coming out and into Eda at the sixteenth pole and the placings were reversed. The winner is the first foal out of Show Me, a half-sister to the fleet GSW Aegean (Northern Afleet), who failed to get in foal to Bolt d'Oro the following year, but produced a Karakontie (Jpn) filly this term.
