CASA DE GOAT (f, 3, Twirling Candy–Senorita Corredora, by El Corredor) never gave her connections any reason to worry on debut here. She broke well from her rail draw to take command as the 4-5 favorite and drew away from the field with every furlong. Five lengths in front at the head of the lane, the Elm Racing homebred expanded her margin to 12 3/4 lengths on the wire over Catwings (Cupid), who bested Please Be Kind (Violence) in a photo for runner-up honors.

Hailing from a productive female family, Casa de Goat is a half to Holiday's Angel (Harlan's Holiday), MSP, $196,096 and two other winners. The mare also produced a 2-year-old colt by Nyquist as well as a yearling full-sister to the victress. Senorita Corredora is expecting a foal by Authentic this season. This is the family of GIII Delaware Oaks winner Dark Nile (Pioneerof the Nile) and GSP Tres Coronas (Chief's Crown).

Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $59,675. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
