TUMBLING SKY (c, 2, Competitive Edge–Tareks Dream, by Distorted Humor), a 2-1 shot, attended the pace as Irish Front (Summer Front) zipped through fractions of :21.84 and :44.94. Tumbling Sky took charge at the top of lane and, while Bellavia (Honor Code) gave chase late, he held on well to win by 1 1/4 lengths. Famished (Uncle Mo) closed well for third. Favored Kittansett (American Pharoah) stalked in fourth while racing along the rail, before tiring down the lane to finish sixth.  Tumbling Sky is the seventh winner, and second of the day, for his freshman sire (by Super Saver). A $13,000 EASOCT yearling, the winner brought $200,000 after working a furlong in :10 1/5 at this year's Fasig-Tipton Midlantic May sale. Tareks Dream, who sold for $1,700 while in foal to Tapiture at the 2018 Keeneland November sale, produced a filly by Daredevil last year. The winner's third dam Defer West (Gone West) produced graded winner Forest Music (Unbridled's Song). Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500.
