Practical Joke Filly Sparkles On Keeneland Debut

Howl | Coady

4th-Keeneland, $100,000, Msw, 10-28, 3yo/up, f/m, 6f, 1:10.65, ft, 7 3/4 lengths.
HOWL (f, 3, Practical Joke–How, by Indian Charlie) was crunched into 6-5 favoritism for a belated career debut and overcame a wide trip from the outside draw to open her account in impressive fashion. Not the swiftest away, the aptly named $190,000 Keeneland September yearling worked her way into the thick of things in quick order, but that sluggish dispatch meant that Howl was trapped out as they raced to the turn. Easing down into about the three path around the bend, the scopey dark bay was held together while cornering deep into the lane and turned it on in the final eighth of a mile to report home a powerful 7 3/4-length winner. How, who was RNAd for $90,000 with this filly in utero at Keeneland November in 2019, is also responsible for the 2-year-old filly Practitioner (Classic Empire) and a weanling filly by Good Magic. The mare was most recently bred to Drain the Clock. Howl is bred like this year's GIII Count Fleet Sprint H. winner Skelly, while the cross of Into Mischief over Indian Charlie has resulted in Grade I winner Dayoutoftheoffice and graded winner Frank's Rockette. Sales history: $190,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $56,575. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
