4th-Churchill Downs, $120,000, Msw, 6-14, 2yo, f, 5f, :57.26, ft, 5 lengths.
VIGGIEDAL (f, 2, Vekoma–Minnelli, by Unbridled's Song), the 8-5 second choice behind 6-5 favorite Aurelia's Mischief (Into Mischief), enjoyed a sharp break and was able to get over to the rail and open up into the turn as the favorite fell back in mid pack. Clear into the lane, Viggiedal was home free and finished up under a hand ride five lengths ahead of Kimchi Cat (Twirling Candy) in second. Aurelia's Mischief, a daughter of Lady Aurelia, tired to finish fifth of six. The sixth winner for her freshman sire (by Candy Ride {Arg}), Viggiedal was a $350,000 OBS March buy this year for CJ Stables. This is the family of Canadian Horse of the Year Alywow (Alysheba). The winner has a yearling half-brother by War of Will while her dam visited Omaha Beach for 2024. Sales History: $160,000 Ylg '23 KEESEP; $350,000 2yo '24 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $0.
