Sunday's Insights: 600K Flatter Colt Debuts at Del Mar


Flatter, sire of  $600K buy Affable | Claiborne Farm

4th-DMR, $57K, Msw, 2yo, 6f, 5:00 p.m. ET
Muir Hut Stables LLC's AFFABLE (Flatter) gets a start for trainer Mark Glatt. Out of the unraced mare Wildaboutshopping (Wildcat Heir), the chestnut realized a $600,000 final bid earlier this spring at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds in Training sale. The colt is the highest-priced offspring by the stallion in 2020. Always well-represented in these West Coast tests for babies, Bob Baffert saddles BARRAZA (Into Mischief) and SAVILLE ROW (Quality Road). Out of graded winner Halo Dolly (Popular), the former enters in this race off a pair of fast works, including the most recent a five-furlong move in :59 2/5 (2/53). Equally sharp in the mornings, Saville Row is a grandson of juvenile champion filly Folklore (Tiznow). This represents the family of Essential Quality (Tapit), Friday's winner of the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile. TJCIS PPs
