Trained by Saffie Joseph, Jr., Tonalist’s Shape is, literally, a horse that has done nothing wrong. After breaking her maiden at 19-1 in her first career start, she remains unbeaten in her career at five-for-five. Yet not a lot of people have jumped on her bandwagon, as some of her speed figures have been on the slow side and it remains to be seen how strong this group based in South Florida is. She is 9-1 in the latest round of the Kentucky Oaks Future Wager and is from the first crop of Tonalist, who is on a nice run of late. In addition to Tonalist’s Shape, offspring Tonal Vision won a maiden race Sunday at Aqueduct and Alta’s Reward finished second in the GIII Honeybee S. Saturday at Oaklawn.
