5th-Pimlico, $50,904, Alw (NW1X)/Opt. Clm ($62,500), 6-13, 3yo, f, 6f, 1:10.27, ft, 6 lengths.
EDIE MEENY MINY MO (f, 3, Upstart–Plum {SW, $128,440}, by Pure Prize) continued a promising start to her career Sunday at a somewhat surprising 3-1 while sporting blinkers for the first time. A sharp :10 flat breezer at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic last year, the dark bay debuted a 4 1/4-length winner in a waiver maiden claimer (not in for the tag as the race condition is effectively a state-bred maiden special weight plus open $40,000 maiden claimer) here Apr. 23, and was flattered when two also-rans from that heat came back to graduate and two more ran second. With the money pouring in on Liv and Let Liv (Khozan), a big-figure last-out winner at the level, Edie Meeny Miny Mo was pushed along up the inside before getting shuffled back into the turn. She made a nifty move along with the chalk as those two took over approaching the stretch, but made quick work of her more fancied rival to romp impressively. The winner has an unraced 2-year-old half-brother named Gig (Bodemeister), a yearling half-brother by Twirling Candy and a foal half-sister by Unified.
