Speightstown's Undervalued Asset A Sure Bet On Debut


Undervalued Asset | Chelsea Durand

1st-Aqueduct, $82,450, Msw, 11-10, 2yo, f, 6f, 1:13.31, ft, 8 1/4 lengths.

UNDERVALUED ASSET (f, 2, Speightstown–Hard Headed Temper, by Hard Spun), dispatched as the popular 3-5 choice for her afternoon debut, broke into second after briefly losing her footing, pressing the early speed of Pardon Moi (Not This Time) as the leading pair ran the opening quarter in :23.33. With no visible move from jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr., Undervalued Asset took over under her own power around the turn and dashed clear of Risk Free (American Freedom) at the top of the lane. Much the best heading home despite swapping leads late, she widened her winning margin with each stride before easing up late, hitting the wire 8 1/4 lengths to the good. Risk Free checked in second while Biloxi Blues (Tapit) was a further two lengths back in third. Out of a half-sister to a pair of graded-stakes horses including GISP Heart of Destiny (Lion Heart), Undervalued Asset also counts GISW & MGISP Rosalind (Broken Vow) as a member of her extended family. Hard Headed Temper has a yearling filly by Mitole and foaled a colt by Echo Town last year before visiting Lexitonian for the 2023 season. Sales History: $150,000 Wlg '20 KEENOV. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $46,750. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
