2YO DANCER’S MELODY Rallies in Debut Win

Making her career debut at Laurel going six furlongs, DANCER’S MELODY swung six wide near the top of the stretch and closed through the lane to finish fastest in a nine-horse field to get the victory by 1 1/2 lengths. The 2-year-old filly from the third crop of ALTERNATION, never more than four lengths off the lead, began her rally on the turn and proved much the best. Lifetime record: 1-1-0-0, $24,453. O-Tim F.
