SUNDANCE FEATURE (f, 4, Speightstown–Kinsey {SP, $134,810}, by Delaware Township) was a game second in her Turfway debut March 28 and really stepped up in her first try on the main track at Churchill. The 3-1 third choice was quick off the blocks and intent on the lead, keeping pressure on Sally O’Malley (Goldencents) from just off that runner’s shoulder before drawing past with ease off the far turn. The class of the field with a quarter to run, Sundance Feature ran up the score and cruised by double-digit lengths to break her maiden over Thoughtful (Gun Runner) who was far back in the place slot. A half-sister to Firsthand Report (Blame), MSW, $331,395, the dam of both SW Somebody’s Problem (Runhappy) and GISP E J Won the Cup (Omaha Beach), Sundance Feature is also out of a full-sister to GSW Electrify and a half to GSW/GISP Rothko (Arch). Kinsey has a 2-year-old Union Rags filly, a yearling Yaupon colt and was bred to Essential Quality for this year. Sales History: $230,000 Ylg ’21 KEEJAN. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $82,525.
