The latest daughter out of champion older mare and MGISW Close Hatches (First Defense), SCYLLA (Tapit) debuts in the silks of Juddmonte Farm for trainer Bill Mott.

This is also the female line of G1 Tattersalls Irish Two Thousand Guineas hero Siskin (First Defence).

Breaking just to Scylla’s outside is Brenda (Curlin)–the half-sister to GSW & MGISP Thank You Marylou (Birdstone)–who debuts Saturday for John Ennis and owner Mathiesen Racing LLC. TJCIS PPS
