+DENMAN'S CALL (g, 3, Northern Afleet–Maggie McGowan, by Salt Lake), dismissed at 22-1 in this career bow while second-time-starting stablemate Rim Nick (J P's Gusto) was hammered down to 7-5 favoritism, tracked from third off the inside through an opening quarter in :22.24 and ranged up for a bid as they hit the half in :45.79. Charging to the lead in early stretch, the chestnut hit the line a good-looking 3 3/4 lengths ahead of Cupid (Tapit). Rim Nick endured some trouble and checked in fifth. The winner, who is out of a half-sister to MGISW Evening Jewel (Northern Afleet), has a 2-year-old half brother by Into Mischief and a yearling half-sister by Graydar. His dam was bred back to Goldencents. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $33,600. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
