A filly from the family of Elate debuts Sunday | Coady Photography


4th-BAQ, $90K, Msw, 2yo, f, 6 1/2f, 2:39 p.m.

The most expensive of a trio of first-time starters in this slot, AUDACIOUS (Into Mischief) brought a final bid of $700,000 as a yearling at Keeneland last September. Dam Veracity, herself a $1.7m RNA at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Fall Mixed Sale, is a full sister to SW Cheery (Distorted Humor), the dam of MGISW Elate (Medaglia d'Oro). Veracity also produced GISP Chide (Blame) and the dam of MGSW Tax (Arch).

Drawn inside as the first half of a coupled entry, Martingale (Curlin), no slouch in the sales ring either at $575,000, is the first foal out of a stakes-placed half-sister to GSW/GISP Run Away (Run Away and Hide). The mare's second foal, a Maclean's Music yearling colt, just brought $460,000 last week at Keeneland.

The other half of the coupled entry, Catherine Wheel (Into Mischief), breezed a 9.4 furlong at OBS April this spring and sold for $725,000. Second by three-quarters of a length in her Saratoga debut Aug. 20, this filly is from the extended family of MGISW Arcangelo (Arrogate).

Montego Bay (Speightstown) is the first foal to race out of a half-sister to G1 St. James's Palace S. winner Without Parole (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and to GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile victor Tamarkuz (Speightstown). This is the extended family of MGSIW Stay Thirsty (Bernardini) and GSW/MGISP Andromeda's Hero (Fusaichi Pegasus). TJCIS PPS

1st-BAQ, $90K, Msw, 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:05 p.m.

Opening the day's card, Treble Clef (Arrogate) debuts as a Juddmonte homebred for trainer Bill Mott. The gray colt is a half-brother to GISW Obligatory (Curlin) while his dam is a half to G1SW Etoile Montante (Miswaki) and to the dam of MGSW/MGISP Bonny South (Munnings). Juddmonte bought into the family with the 1987 purchase of the filly's third dam, Nijinsky Star, for $700,000 at that year's Keeneland November Breeding Sale. TJCIS PPS
