Saturday Insights: Full-Brother To Fierceness Debuts At Aqueduct

GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Fierceness | Benoit


7th-BAQ, $90K, Msw, 2yo, 5f, 3:40 p.m.

One half of a Repole Stable entry, MENTEE (City of Light) is a full-brother to 'TDN Rising Star' and Champion 2-year-old Male Fierceness. Nonna Bella is herself a daughter of GISP Nonna Mia and a half to GI Wood Memorial S. winner and sire Outwork (Uncle Mo) while third dam Holy Bubbette is responsible for MGSW and sire Cairo Prince (Pioneerof the Nile). Drawn outside for Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez, Mentee comes in off a best-of-20 work June 7 at Saratoga, going four furlongs from the gate over the Oklahoma track in :47 2/5.

Lined up in the middle of the gate, Magical Bette (Good Magic) is one of three fillies in the field taking on the boys. A $600,000 yearling out of Fasig-Tipton's Saratoga Sale last year, she is a half to SW Blueblood (City Zip) and SW Gamble's Candy (Twirling Candy) while her dam is a half to MGSW Gamble's Ghost (Ghostzapper).
