Good Sam sells at KEEJAN | Keeneland Photo

1st-Belmont at The Big A, $95,000, Msw, 10-2, 2yo, f, 6 1/2f, 1:17.28, sy, 4 3/4 lengths.
GOOD SAM (f, 2, Good Samaritan–Twizzler, by Twirling Candy) was by far the priciest of 63 first-crop yearlings by her freshman sire (by Harlan's Holiday) when fetching $310,000 at KEESEP after also being his most expensive weanling/short yearling at $110,000 at KEEJAN. Off at 4-1 breaking from the rail over a sloppy track Sunday, she justified those price tags while becoming winner number nine for Good Samaritan. Quickest from the blocks, the bay doled out splits of :23.66 and :48.39 before hitting another gear in upper stretch and widening away by 4 3/4 lengths. Fellow firster Seduction (Bernardini) completed the exacta. The winner's dam was second on debut in a turf sprint maiden special weight at Ellis and is a daughter of MGISW Twist Afleet (Afleet). She was purchased for just $4,000 at KEENOV '17 in foal to Noble Mission (GB), and was bred back to Good Samaritan in each of her next three matings after producing Good Sam, but did not have a foal in either 2021 or 2022. Sales history: $110,000 Ylg '21 KEEJAN; $310,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $52,250. Click for the chart.
