HENDY WOODS (f, 3, Uncle Mo–Separate Forest {GSW, $206,525}, by Forestry), given a 10-1 chance in this unveiling, parlayed a perfect run in transit into a one-length tally. Away without incident from gate six, the Stonestreet homebred was agreeable to being eased back passing under the wire for the first time and settled behind pacesetting Fine One Won (Tiznow), who galloped them along at an even clip. Hugging the fence for the entirety of the opening six furlongs, the bay eased out into the three path in upper stretch, lugged in a bit while rallying outside of Skye Snow (Lemon Drop Kid) into the final sixteenth of a mile and edged clear late. Bred on the exact same cross responsible for champion and GI Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist and Grade III winner Auntie Joy, Hendy Woods is out of a Grade III-winning dam whose half-brother Indiano (Indian Charlie) was a multiple Panamanian champion before winning a pair of graded dirt sprints in this country. Separate Forest is the dam of a 2-year-old Street Sense colt and a yearling colt by More Than Ready. She was not bred in 2019. Sales history: $95,000 RNA Ylg ’18 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
