Her World (Ire) (Caravaggio) became the first American winner for her outstanding young sire (by Scat Daddy), 14th winner overall and third black-type winner, leading every step of the way to beat the boys in Saturday's $100,000 Tyro S. at Monmouth Park and earning 'TDN Rising Star' status in the process.

The second most expensive of 64 of her sire's yearlings reported as sold in 2020 when knocked down for $400,000 at Keeneland September last fall, Her World jumped as the 9-10 chalk despite her inexperience and was sent quickly to the front by Paco Lopez before crossing and clearing her rivals. Skipping along under her own courage, she began to widen on the turn, was firmly in front as the field reached the stretch and powered home to score as tons the best.

"We're excited, she did exactly what we thought she would," said winning trainer Wesley Ward. "We don't have to change much after watching that race moving forward. We're going to bring her next to Keeneland, and then we plan on bringing her to the Breeders' Cup. With what she showed today winning in a stakes race against colts who had experience, it's encouraging. We're going to skip right along and continue from this. I look forward to her next couple of starts but I also look forward to her being a 3-year-old, and I think [co-owner] Dick Brodie and the rest of the owners have a special one with her."

A half-sister to SW & G1SP Consort (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}), Her World descends from a strong Flaxman family and is out of a half-sister to MGSW Surya (Unbridled), the dam of GISW Aruna (Mr. Greeley) and GSW Hoop of Colour (Distorted Humor). Her third dam is a half-sister to GI Acorn S. heroine Miss Oceana. Mundus Novus is represented by a yearling colt by Scat Daddy's successful sire son No Nay Never.
