+DIRECT DIAL (c, 2, Too Much Bling–Fast Find, by Mineshaft) took all the money for his debut and ran to his backing, dominating a field of juvenile maidens at Keeneland. Coming in off of a best-of-39 local half-mile breeze from the gate in :47 2/5, the gray broke as the 7-10 chalk and sat second early before taking charge passing a :22.44 quarter. Creeping away in hand on the turn, the favorite never gave any stretch runners a chance, cruising home 7 3/4 lengths to the good. Tememon (Tale of Ekati) completed the exacta. The winner, who topped the Texas Thoroughbred Association's yearling/mixed sale at $105,000 last summer, is a full-brother to Scooter's Choice, SW, $113,006. His unraced dam, out of MGSP Are You Up (Eagle Eyed), was barren last season and was bred back to Too Much Bling. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $26,820.
