Highland Glory 2 for 2 in Sanibel S.
RSS Feeds Sunday, March 29, 2020

Highland Glory stayed unbeaten on the grass Saturday while becoming the second Sky Mesa-sired stakes winner out of her dam and for these connections, following in the hoofsteps of hard knocker Highland Sky. Second to next-out GI Frizette S. heroine Wicked Whisper (Liam's Map) in that one's TDN Rising Star-garnering debut sprinting at Saratoga last August, the bay was fourth going a mile at Belmont in October behind subsequent Tempted S. romper Maedean (Tapit) and recent Busher S. upsetter Water White (Conveyance). She resurfaced to score as the favorite here Jan. 19, and took some tote support for this stakes debut off a 12-1 morning line projection. Sitting midpack early while out in the clear, the bay traveled strongly down the backside and inched closer heading for home while four wide. Pacesetter Cheermeister looked like she might score another front-running victory when they straightened, but Highland Glory leveled off late to get up in the shadow of the wire. The winner's dam is half to GISW Bit of Whimsy (Distorted Humor), who in turn produced Grade II winner Caroline Thomas (Giant's Causeway). Further down the page are GISWs Miss Josh and Royal Mountain. Kristi With a K was bred back to Lord Nelson for 2020
