Blame’s Daisy Remains Unbeaten in the Tempted

Stretching out to the one-turn mile off a smashing eight-length debut success over a sloppy main track at Parx Oct. 9, Fox Hill Farms’ DAISY (f, 2, Blame–Lovely Stay, by Flower Alley) showed some intestinal fortitude to beat back pace-pressing Oldfashioned Style (Old Fashioned) at the eighth pole and strode home to remain perfect in Friday’s GIII Tempted S. at Aqueduct. Fast into stride, the $80,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga graduate headed off her five rivals linking up with the main track and she and Oldfashioned Style had the race to themselves for all intents and purposes. Never allowed a breather through fractions that were comfortable, but pressured, Daisy, the 5-2 second choice may even have surrendered the lead approaching the final furlong, but battled back gamely inside and kicked away to score by about four lengths. Sweet Candy Dance (Twirling Candy) was third ahead of a disappointing 2-5 Navajo (Union Rags) back in fourth. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0. O-Fox Hill Farms. B-Jonathan Sheppard (PA). T-John C Servis.
