2YO BEST PERFORMANCE Runner-Up in $350,000 Stakes at Kentucky Downs
Making her first start on turf, BEST PERFORMANCE rallied through the stretch to finish runner-up in the $350,000 Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies S., only 1 1/2 lengths back on the win. Racing in a field of 12 at Kentucky Downs, the 2-year-old filly by BROKEN VOW was ninth after the first half in this seven-furlong sprint on a turf course rated good. She began to move up on the sweeping turn four wide, then moved closer to the inside for the run to the wire and finished well to be gaining at the end. BEST PERFORMANCE was coming off a runner-up performance in Saratoga’s six-furlong Schuylerville S.-G3. The $300,000 Fasig-Tipton Florida purchase won her debut at Belmont in May, then finished runner-up in the Astoria S. Lifetime record: 4-1-3-0, $175,100.
