MY GIRL RED (f, 2, Texas Red–Morakami {SP, $145,532}, by Fusaichi Pegasus), sent off at 2-1 for the same connections that campaigned her sire (by Afleet Alex) to victories in the 2014 GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and 2015 GII Jim Dandy S., became the freshman’s first winner with a sharp showing at Santa Anita Sunday. Sharp from the blocks, the bay dueled along the fence with a longshot early  before shaking loose at the top of the stretch. She ran up the score from there, streaking away to don cap and gown by five good-looking lengths. Favored Miss Baylee (Dominus) finished well to be second. The winner’s stakes-placed dam was purchased by Erich Brehm for just $21,000 at Keeneland January in 2017 carrying a Street Boss colt who would eventually become Gold Street (Street Boss), MSW, $229,468. My Girl Red is also half to Over Thinking (Overanalyze), SP, $241,081; and Oh Marvelous Me (Bluegrass Cat), GSP, $201,798. Her second dam is MSW Astrid (Concern). Morakami produced another Texas Red filly in 2019 and a Kitten’s Joy filly May 5. $70,000 RNA Ylg ’19 OBSOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,000.
