Night of Thunder Filly Dynamic Pricing Gives Brown First Edgewood Score

Dynamic Pricing | Horsephotos


It's hard to believe there are any graded stakes on the grass that have not been won by a 3-year-old filly from the barn of Chad Brown, but entering Friday's action, that was remarkably the case. Klaravich Stables' Dynamic Pricing (Ire) (Night of Thunder {Ire}) managed to put pay to that anomalous statistic with a fast-finishing victory in the GII Edgewood S. at a soggy Churchill Downs.

Let go at odds of nearly 9-1–a healthy mutuel for any Brown runner–the €170,000 Tattersalls October yearling acquisition broke well enough from gate nine in a scratched-down field of 11 and settled in mid-division three deep into the first turn, with cover on the back of Way to Be Marie (Not This Time) as longshot Maxisuperfly (Optimizer) cut out a decent pace.

Continuing to slipstream Way to Be Marie through the middle furlongs, Dynamic Pricing traveled strongly, but three wide on the turn while following the move of Way to Be Marie before angling off that one's heels in upper stretch. Way to Be Marie had gotten first run, took command and looked on her way to victory, but Dynamic Pricing was kept after by Irad Ortiz, Jr. and was along in the dying strides for the victory. Dancing N Dixie (Neolithic) came with a stinging rally down the center of the course to finish third.

Dynamic Pricing nosed out Way to Be Marie to graduate at first asking at Aqueduct last Nov. 4 and turned in a bold effort on her sophomore debut, running home smartly to finish third, beaten a half-length, in the Feb. 3 GIII Sweetest Chant S. at Gulfstream. Saddled with a double-digit alley for the GIII Florida Oaks last time Mar. 9, Dynamic Pricing was last of 11 after a half-mile and made belated progress to finish seventh, just under four lengths behind Waskesiu (American Pharoah).

Pedigree Notes:

Dynamic Pricing is the 44th worldwide stakes winner and 23rd group/graded winner for her sire (by Dubawi {Ire}) and his second American winner at the graded level, joining GIII Robert G. Dick S. winner Sopran Basilea (Ire).

Shemda, a half-sister to G3 Stanerra S. and G3 Irish St Leger Trial winner Shamida (Ire) (Australia {GB}), was purchased for 110,00gns by Denis Brosnan's Epona Bloodstock in foal to Showcasing (GB) at Tattersalls December in 2019, and Dynamic Pricing is one of two winners from three to race out of the mare. The other is Hi Clare (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), a 24,000gns purchase by Hunter Valley Farm out of last year's December Mares Sale at Tattersalls. Third dam Shemaka won the 1993 G1 Prix de Diane for His Highness The Aga Khan en route to a divisional championship that season.

Dynamic Pricing is the last listed produce for Shemda.
