4th-KEE, $100K, Msw, 3yo/up, f, 6f, 2:36 p.m. ET.
G. Watts Humphrey campaigned homebred Romantic Vision (Lemon Drop Kid), who won three out of her four tries at Keeneland, including the 2017 GI Juddmonte Spinster S. Now, her first offspring RARE AFFAIR (Medaglia d'Oro) debuts and like her dam, she's trained by Rusty Arnold.

Romantic Vision is also responsible for a yearling colt by Nyquist, who just sold during Keeneland September for $700,000 to the Three Amigos, foaled a colt by Essential Quality Apr. 1 and she was bred to City of Light for next year.

Rare Affair hails from a deep family of Humphrey homebreds which includes second dam GSP Perfect for You (Giant's Causeway), fourth dam GSW Dream Scheme (Danzig) and her half-sister, MGISW Clear Mandate (Deputy Mininster), herself the dam of MGSW and MGISP Newfoundland (Storm Cat) and GISW Strong Mandate (Tiznow), among others.

7th-WO, $111K, Msw, 2yo,, f, 7fT, 4:37 p.m. ET.
Switching to the E.P. Taylor Course at Woodbine, a $550,000 Keeneland September purchase by Tracy Farmer named Aspen Dawn (Quality Road) makes her first start for Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse.

Out of unraced dam Aspen Light (Bernardini), who went to Eaton Sales for $360,000 at the '20 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale with the bay filly in-utero, Aspen Dawn counts GIII Stonestreet Lexington S. hero Owendale (into Mischief) as a half-brother.

This is an extended female family which includes GI Lane's End Breeders' Futurity winner Great Hunter (Aptitude), GIII Peter Pan S. champ Promise Keeper (Constitution) and champion 3-year-old filly Stellar Wind (Curlin). TJCIS PPS
