Miss Dracarys | Coglianese

2nd-Aqueduct, $80,000, Msw, 12-4, 2yo, f, 6fT, 1:10.45, gd,1 length.
MISS DRACARYS (f, 2, Malibu Moon–Ask Me When, by Speightstown), the second-priciest offspring by her sire of 47 yearlings sold in 2019 when bringing $525,000 at Keeneland September, lit up the tote board at 23-1 in this debut run. She raced under a snug hold in seventh on the inside and was traveling nicely as the field hit the quarter pole. Kept along the fence by Kendrick Carmouche as they turned for home, the bay threaded the needle in deep stretch and ran to daylight to win going away by a length over Stuck On Kitten (Kitten's Joy). The winner is a half to Up the Ante (Smart Strike), SW & GSP, $298,713; and a full to Aristocratic, SW & GSP, $361,379. Ask Me When, a half-sister to MGSW and Spendthrift sire Dominus (Smart Strike), had a colt by Quality Road in 2020 and was barren for 2021. This is also the family of grassy MGISW Honey Ryder (Lasting Approval). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $44,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
