The post-Derby program at Gulfstream concludes with this turf dash for sophomore fillies headed by 7-2 morning-line chance SHOOTOUTTHELIGHTS (City of Light) from the barn of Wesley Ward. A $525,000 purchase by the Breeze Easy braintrust at Keeneland September in 2021, the April foal looks to become the second winner for her stakes-placed dam, a half-sister to turf MGSW Clearly a Queen (Lucky North), who is also responsible for Bison City S. victress Mizzen Beau (Mizzen Mast). Sign of Beauty (War Front) cost Live Oak $775,000 at Fasig-Tipton Saratoga in the summer of 2021 and with good reason, as she is a full-sister to Cambodia, a three-time graded winner on the grass and third in the 2017 GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf; as well as Sylphide (Blame), whose daughter Danse Macabre (Army Mule) took out this year’s GIII Herecomesthebride S. at this venue. The filly’s dam Sassifaction (Smart Strike) is a half-sister to three-time South African champion sprinter Overarching (Arch); GSW Temeraine (Arch); SWs Dead Red (Out of Place) and Alone At Last (Quiet American); and to the dam of GISW Abscond (Blame).
