Well-Bet Frankel Filly Obliges in First-Out Spa Score

Fortineno (Ire)Sarah Andrew

2nd-Saratoga, $100,000, Msw, 8-22, 2yo, f, 1 1/16mT, 1:49.45, yl, 1 1/2 lengths.

FORTINENO (IRE) (f, 2, Frankel {GB}–Rubina {Ire} {SP-Ire}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}), backed to 6-5 favoritism for this debut despite a modest-looking worktab, traveled in a clear fifth as Seduce (Into Mischief) dictated terms through pokey fractions of :26.06 and :51.81 over boggy ground. Picking up a bit three wide nearing the lane, the $400,000 Keeneland September buy found her best stride passing the eighth pole and wore down the pacesetter in the final sixteenth to score going away by 1 1/2 lengths. Seduce held for second money. The victress is a full-sister to Rubilinda, MSW, $246,540. Her dam, bought for 475,000 guineas at the 2013 Tattersalls December Mare Sale, has a yearling No Nay Never filly and produced a full-sister to the winner this term before visiting American Pharoah. Sales History: $400,000 Ylg '20 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $55,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
