2YO Spider Dance Wins by 8 1/2 for Hidden Brook Racing Partnersip

Monday, December 10, 2018

Spider Dance was third over a sloppy Indiana Downs strip in her off-turf debut Oct. 31. Sent off at 5-1, over a fast Fair Grounds surface on December 9, the gray filly settled in midpack behind an opening quarter in :23.9 before she pulled herself into contention after a half in :48.95.
She then powered to the lead in upper stretch and stormed home an 8 1/2-length winner.

A daughter of Exchange Rate, Spider Dance was purchased by Hidden Brook farm for $85,000 after working a furlong in :10 2/5 at this year's OBS June sale.
