Monday, April 24, 2017
6th-TAM, $20,000, Msw, 4-23, 3yo/up, f/m, 5fT, :57.24, fm. LA PARISIENNE (f, 3, Harlan's Holiday--Claire's Smile, by Carson City) closed belatedly to finish fourth on debut sprinting over the lawn at Laurel Oct. 15 and followed with third and fourthplace finishes around two turns over the local turf Nov. 18 and Dec. 31, respectively. Shelved for the remainder of the winter, the bay resurfaced in thisspot as the 6-5 choice. The homebred bided her time racing off the pace behind a :21.86 quarter-mile and rallied to tag More to Adore (Kitten=sJoy) by a half-length on the wire. The winner is a half to Loose Leaf (Notebook), SW, $231,770; and Sweet Cat (Kitten=s Joy), MGSP, $232,950. Claire=s Smile is also responsible for a 2-year-old Uncle Mo colt named Uncle Mike. Lifetime Record: 4-1-0-1, $20,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton. O-Catesby W. Clay & Nicolas De Chambure; B-Runnymede Farm Inc. & Catesby W.
