Big Challenge was well away to track the leaders in a handy fourth from the outset of this unveiling. Making smooth headway in the long straight, the 4-1 chance led soon after challenging on the bridle at the quarter-mile marker and easily asserted under minimal coaxing in the closing stages to score by an unextended 2 1/4 lengths from Melodic Motion (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}). The 230,000gns TATFOA foal is out of an unraced daughter of GI Spinster S. heroine Try Something New (Hail the Pirates) and is thus a half-brother to the stakes-placed Olympia Fields (Alydeed) and G3 Oh So Sharp S. victress Raymi Coya (Van Nistelrooy), herself the dam of Listed Radley S. and Listed Surrey S. runner-up Make Fast (GB) (Makfi {GB}). From a family which also includes MGSW GI Flower Bowl Invitational third Dynaslew (Dynaformer), he is kin to a yearling colt by Acclamation (GB) and a colt foal by Sea the Stars (Ire). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $3,564.
