+SCHEME (f, 2, Tizway–Decorator, by Storm Cat) parlayed a perfect trip into an upset first-out score at Gulfstream. Coming in with a solid series of breezes, most recently going five furlongs around dogs over the Palm Meadows turf Dec. 16 in 1:00 3/5 (3/14), the $85,000 KEESEP buy broke well at 27-1 and checked a bit going into the clubhosue turn to sit seventh along the rail behind a :22.93 quarter. Dropping back a few spots by a :47.90 half, the dark bay steadily inched up at the fence on the far turn and smoothly split horses in the two-path at the top of the lane. Surging to the lead just inside the eighth pole, Scheme edged clear from there to earn a 1 3/4-length victory over Ritzy Rose (Hat Trick {Jpn}). The winner's dam is a half to MGSW/MGISP sire E Dubai (Mr. Prospector), as well as No Matter What (Nureyev), the GISW dam of MG1SW European champion Rainbow View (Dynaformer), GSW/MGISP Just as Well (A.P. Indy), MGSW Winter View (Thunder Gulch) and GSW Utley (Smart Strike). Her second dam, MSW/MGSP Words of War (Lord At War {Arg}) is a full to Ascutney, the GSW dam of 2008 GI Breeders' Cup Classic hero Raven's Pass (Elusive Quality). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $21,600.
