Medaglia d'Oro Filly Airs on Debut at Belmont

7th-Belmont, $90,000, Msw, 10-22, 2yo, f, 1 1/16m, 1:47.36, ft, 7 3/4 lengths. NOSTALGIC (f, 2, Medaglia d'Oro–Been Here Before {SP}, by Tapit), scratched out of an intended unveiling here about a month ago, showed three easy breezes in the interim and was let go at 9-1 as her second-time-starting stablemate Handbelle (Tapit) took the most tote attention. The Godolphin homebred showed little early foot and sat far back in second last down the backside through splits of :24.02 and :48.50. She sliced through a seam and began to inch closer as longtime leaders Into Happiness (Into Mischief) and Saffron Moon (Malibu Moon) seemed to be separating themselves, and enjoyed an unencumbered fence run into the lane to sit third. Tipped out to take on the frontrunners, she powered to the front in midstretch and cruised away from there all by her lonesome. Into Happiness got the better of Saffron Moon for second. Handbelle never factored and checked in fourth. The winner, whose dam was second in the 2015 Caesar's Wish S. going a mile in the Laurel slop and hails from the extended female family of GISW Bob and John, was bred to Violence for 2022. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.

Of pedigree | Sylvanella comfortable

SYLVANELLA comfortably prevailed in the debut of the two-year-old generation in 2021 in La Rinconada, winning the Lanzarote, Classic for fillies. 4p x 5m to SEATTLE SLEW, from Urama 416, was led by Robert Capriles for the Quarterback colors, under the training of Carlos Luis Giardinella, who added another classic to his outstanding campaign, doubling for the second consecutive week. Daughter of RUFFALEX stallion who won last year with GROWING NEL the first classic for 2-year-old males, her mother daughter of TAPIT is from the 9-e family, the same as CACCIATORA winner of this Classic in 2018 and the same at the level world-wide through the years and of palpitating news of great runners and / or reproducers like DUBAWI, DALAKHANI, ZAFONIC, CARAVAGGIO, TALGO father of the winners of the Caribbean GUADAMUR and NACOZAREÑO, of SICOTICO another winner of the Caribbean. Regarding what happened when the line was crossed, Giardinella told me that it was a stranger who did the filly to Capriles, who immediately decided to get off without putting the filly or her integrity at risk. THANK GOD it was nothing for either of us, everything went well, just the tremendous scare.
