PROXY (c, 2, Tapit–Panty Raid {MGISW, $1,052,380}, by Include) missed by a neck in his off-the-turf debut at Monmouth Oct. 24 and broke through next out here Nov. 26. Hammered down to 3-5 favoritism in this four-horse affair, the Godolphin homebred seized the early advantage as he did in his graduation and was hounded by his rivals through a :24.97 first quarter. Briefly headed by Assumption (Medaglia d'Oro), the bay regained command as the half went in :49.05. His three foes stuck with him heading into the lane, but Proxy forged clear of them despite some green moments to register a 2 1/2-length victory. Good First (Carpe Diem) got up for second. Godolphin purchased his dam, two-time Grade I winner and millionaire Panty Raid, for $2.5 million at the 2008 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. She is also responsible for Micheline (Bernardini), MSW & GISP, $545,978. The 16-year-old mare's 2019 foal by Frosted was born dead and she was not bred for 2020, but returned to that Darley stallion this spring. Lifetime Record: 3-2-1-0, $67,700.
