Spendthrift Farm's Gormley (Malibu Moon) has gotten off to a flyer at stud, with 18 first-crop winners to his credit, and B DAWK will look to add to that total Sunday 'where the turf meeets the surf. A half-brother to SP Nicky Scissors, the May 21 foal was a $77,000 short yearling at Keeneland January last year before improving into a $140,000 KEESEP purchase. Joseph Besecker signed the ticket on the chestnut at $425,000 at this year's Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Sale (see below) and West Point Thoroughbreds, among the underbidders, struck a deal to partner on the colt. The hammer price was the second-priciest of his sire's 45 juveniles (52 ring) reported as sold this year. TJCIS PPs
