Debut filly HOLLYWOODLAND (Quality Road) for Hall of Famer Shug McGaughey was a $500,000 KEESEP purchase as a yearling by owner Joseph Allen, who bred and campaigns recent GIII La Prevoyante S. winner Personal Best (Tapit). This filly’s dam, Union City, is a sister to MGSW Dixie City, whose own offspring Reef Point (Giant’s Causeway) produced MGSW Bubble Rock (More Than Ready).

Not to be outdone, Union City is responsible for GII Peter Pan S. hero Unified (Candy Ride {Arg}). Breaking from the three post on Sunday, Hollywoodland will get the services of Tyler Gaffalione. TJCIS PPS
