VELVET SISTER (Bernardini) brought $500,000 from Stonestreet Stables after breezing an eighth in a powerful :10 1/5 at Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream. Trained by Steve Asmussen, the bay is a half-sister to the tough-as-nails 7-year-old gelding MSW My Boy Tate (Boys At Tosconova). Stonestreet has enjoyed top- level success with Bernardini's Cavorting and Rachel's Valentina. Gerrymander (Into Mischief), a half-sister to last Saturday's runaway GII Brooklyn S. winner Lone Rock (Majestic Warrior), is the 2-1 morning-line favorite. The Klaravich Stables colorbearer brought $375,000 as a KEESEP yearling. Chad Brown trains. TJCIS PPs

ROGER MCQUEEN (Unified), a $530,000 OBS March bullet breezer (:20 2/5), was third as the favorite with some trouble in his unveiling on dirt at Churchill Downs May 22. The most expensive of 25 sold from the first crop of Unified is owned by Carolyn Wilson and trained by Larry Rivelli. The dark bay is the 6-5 morning-line favorite in this first try on synthetic.
