NATIONAL TREASURE (c, 2, Quality Road–Treasure, by Medaglia d'Oro) dispatched at 3-1 in this debut, was hustled out of the gate by John Velazquez, hitting the front just before the first quarter went up in a lively :21.89. Hounded by Practical Move (Practical Joke) through a :44.37 half-mile, the $500,000 FTSAUG buy showed the way into the lane and held off a late bid from stablemate Massimo (Uncle Mo) to score by 1 1/2 lengths. Practical Move held third. This is the extended female family of GISW Leofric (Candy Ride {Arg}). The winner has a yearling half-brother, Pirate (Omaha Beach), and a weanling half-sister, Renoir (Authentic), while his dam was bred back to Quality Road for a full-sibling to National Treasure in 2023. Sales History: $500,000 Ylg '21 FTSAUG. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $48,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
