INSPIRESSA (f, 2, The Big Beast–Lucky Trip, by Trippi) wasthe priciest filly and co-fourth topper at OBS March at $850,000. She proved to be the fastest of a promising looking bunch to score first up at Del Mar and become the fourth winner for her sire (Yes It's True). The :20 4/5 breezer quickly emerged between foes to vie for command through an opening quarter in :22.06, before shaking clear and almost appearing to run off through a :45.87 half. Bast (Uncle Mo), a $500,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga grad herself who covered all the ground (50 ft., or approximately 5 3/4 lengths more than the winner, according to Trakus data), gave game chase in the lane, but Inspiressa still had more in the tank and reported home 1 1/2 lengths clear. America's Surprise (American Pharoah), the half-sister to Songbird (Medaglia d'Oro), was a non-threatening third. Inspiressa is out of a winning full-sister to SW/GISP Candrea and MSW Dream of Angels (Trippi). Her dam has a yearling filly by Prospective and was bred back to The Big Beast this year. Sales history: $850,000 2yo '19 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,600. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
