Off at 9/2 in a field of 7, she made the running right from the get go and dueled for the early lead through fractions of 22.04 and 44.96 for the half. She put the other speed away at the top of the lane when Johnny V. asked her to run, and went on and shut the door on the odds on favorite with a final quarter in 24.70. She is bred for anything and everything. Up the ladder for this daughter of Munnings.
