CURLIN’S HONOR (c, 2, Curlin–Franscat, by Stormin Fever)overcame a less-than-ideal trip to run to advanced billing as the 4-5 chalk. A $475,000 Fasig-Tipton July yearling, the chestnut brought a sale-topping $1.5 million after turning in an extremely athletic-looking :10 flat breeze at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale in Timonium. Away well but then out run a bit while hung wide, the 4-5 shot made an impressive move around the bend inside of Fascilitator (The Factor) to reach contention. That foe briefly seemed to be going best, but Curlin’s Honor fought on resolutely to prevail by a neck. The winner, a half-brother to Swinger’s Party (Medaglia d’Oro), SW, $167,065; Powhatan County (Fusaichi Pegasus), GSP, $223,845; and to Hubba Shake (Street Sense), SW, hails from the extended female family of Ogygian. His dam has missed in each of her last three years. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $30,420. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
